Record Observer - - News -

CHURCH HILL — Michael Bos­tic of Church Hill re­cently won sec­ond place and Dan Dulin of Queen Anne re­cently won third place in the Ir­ri­gated di­vi­sion of the 2016 Na­tional Corn Grow­ers As­so­ci­a­tion’s Corn Yield Con­test in Maryland. Bos­tic won with Pi­o­neer® brand P1311AM™, which yielded 276.8991 bushels per acre.

Bos­tic and Dulin each earned one of the 199 state ti­tles won by grow­ers plant­ing Pi­o­neer brand prod­ucts. Grow­ers plant­ing Pi­o­neer brand prod­ucts led the con­test, win­ning 58 per­cent of the 343 state ti­tles awarded this year.

The NCGA Corn Yield Con­test is an an­nual U.S. com­pe­ti­tion among corn grow­ers with the goal of cap­i­tal­iz­ing on the high ge­netic yield po­ten­tial of to­day’s corn hy­brids. Grow­ers com­pete in six corn pro­duc­tion classes: two for non-ir­ri­gated, two for no-till/strip till non-ir­ri­gated, one for no-till/strip till ir­ri­gated and one for ir­ri­gated acres.

“Our 2016 NCGA win­ners demon­strate the value of our con­tin­ued in­vest­ment in germplasm and trait pack­ages, cou­pled with the un­matched team of lo­cal Pi­o­neer pro­fes­sion­als. They are with cus­tomers through­out the year to help them achieve max­i­mum pro­duc­tiv­ity,” said Steve Reno, DuPont Pi­o­neer vice pres­i­dent, re­gional direc­tor, U.S. and Canada.
