But, it's far more significant when over 5,000 farmers, all raising DeKalb Corn, averaged over 114 bushels* per acre. That's what 5,755 American and Canadian farmers did in DeKalb's 1958 Selected 5-acre Corn Growing Contest . . . and, they made this remarkable average on all types of soils under all kinds of weather. Certainly" this accomplishment shows,, that wherever you do your farming, you can be pretty sure that you'll find DeKalb Varieties that are bred to do an outstanding job for you.
