Managing corn production with low prices

Harry McCune, Walnut, Ill., farms just over 3,000 acres, and grows mostly corn with a few soybean acres. He recently spoke to CSD Managing Editor Susan Winsor about how he is managing his corn crop as corn prices continue to dip. "I think we have to get back to some more basic things," he says. From agronomics, including nitrogen management, to increasing yield, McCune is doing what he can to grow the best corn crop for his land.

He also talked about financial management. "I think it's going to take a collective effort from everyone," says McCune. "You have to be conscious of all your costs whenever you can and wherever you can."
