DuPont congratulates David K. Hula of Charles City, Va., and nine other growers planting Pioneer® brand corn hybrids who won national titles in the 2010 National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) Corn Yield Contest announced today.
Among all entries in the national contest, Hula attained the highest overall yield of 368.44 bushels per acre with Pioneer hybrid P1615HR. He won first place in the No Till/Strip Till Irrigated category.
Among the seven growers placing in the national contest who achieved yields above 300 bushels, six of those won with Pioneer hybrids. The ten growers who placed in the national contest with Pioneer hybrids did so with nine different Pioneer products, showing the broad genetic diversity among the company’s high-yielding corn hybrids.
“Growers who plant Pioneer corn hybrids continue to succeed in the NCGA Corn Yield contest year over year, and we’re thrilled to congratulate these growers who choose Pioneer products for their winning yields,” said Pioneer President Paul E. Schickler. “These results continue to demonstrate the impressive yield potential that Pioneer genetics bring to our customers, and it also demonstrates what growers can achieve by planting the right product on the right acre. Congratulations to all the winners.”
The NCGA Corn Yield contest is an annual national competition among corn growers with the goal of producing the highest yields. Growers compete in eight corn production classes, including non-irrigated (A and AA), no-till/strip-till non-irrigated (A and AA), no-till/strip-till irrigated, ridge-till non-irrigated, ridge-till irrigated and irrigated classes.
