Pioneer Hybrids do Exceptionally Well in 2013 NCGA Corn Yield Contest

The National Corn Growers Association recently announced the winners of its 2013 Corn Yield Contest. Eight growers from six states who planted six different Pioneer brand hybrids placed in the six national categories of the contest - and only those who planted Pioneer hybrids reached the 400-bushel level in this year's contest. This year's overall winner in the No-Till/Strip-Till Irrigated category produced an entry of 454.98-bushels per acre - breaking the corn yield world record with a Pioneer hybrid. That grower is David Hula of Virginia. DuPont Pioneer President Paul Shickler says DuPont Pioneer extends its sincere congratulations to Hula for this outstanding achievement. Schickler says this shows the yield potential Pioneer genetics bring to its customers and demonstrates what growers can achieve by planting the right product on the right acre.
