Highest Official Yield
In Recent Years 148
Bushels Per Acre
Highest corn yields will win North
Carolina farmers savings bonds with
a maturity value of S4OO in the
State’s 1950 corn contest The highest
official yield in recent years was 148
bushels per acre, according' to Or. E.
R. Collins, extension agronomist at
State College.
Collins says that yields of 125 to
140 bushels usually win the district
State competition. He explains that
only harvested and weighed yields
will be accepted for entry in the con
test, and that shocked or harvested
com cannot be entered.
Farmers desiring to enter the con
test should be careful that their acre
representing agricultural agencies
of com is harvested by a committee
and businessmen, with a chairman
from outside the county. The acre
must be measured by a county sur
veyor, a licensed surveyor, or a person
recommended by the county PMA
chairman.
Yields above 148 bushels can be dis
qualified by the State committee un
less a member of the committee is
present at the harvest. Certification
of any yield may be disqualified for
non-compliance in regard to any regu
lation.
Farmers making an estimated yield
may determine the moisture content
of their com by sending one pint of
shelled corn in a sealed container to
Clyde Corriher, Ricks Hall, State Col
lege, Raleigh.
The North Carolina Foundation
Seed Producers, Inc., is making avail
able SIOO in bonds to the highest pro
ducer on one acre of land in the State.
In addition, a SIOO bond will be
awarded to the highest producer in
each of three areas.
