These are not the next winning numbers in the Mega Millions lottery.
They are the yield difference in bushels per acre between the top and bottom performers in some of South Dakota State University’s 2018 corn yield trails.
The trials were conducted at Bath, Bancroft, Miller, Beresford, South Shore and Volga. The sites either had conventional-till, minimum-till or no-till systems. Both early and maturing yield trials were conducted at some sites. Genetically modified and conventional corn hybrids were trialed at a few sites.
Trial yields ranged from a high of 290 bushels per acre at South Shore to a low of 158 bushels per acres at Beresford.
No doubt all of the hybrids tested were No. 1 somewhere, under some condition. But which will be No. 1 on your farm next year?
