Since conditions do change, though, your best bet is to look at the average records -official, unbiased records- for the past 3 years. That's why the 3-year average yield records from the official Iowa Corn (Yield Test can help you decide. Pioneer ! hybrids rank first in 5 of the 9 districts I with averages for the past 3 years —which includes an outstanding corn growing year, an average year, and last year's extremely dry season. No other corn ranks first in niore than one district. And not just one or two special Pioneer hybrids made these high yields. Ten different Pioneer hybrids rank amojig the top 5 in one or more districts. Corn belt farmers will plant enough seed this spring from just these 10 Pioneer hybrids to plant three-fourths of all the corn acreage in Iowa. y the Immanuel' Lutheran church here.
