2009 results for Stafford Silo King corn
The harvest on Mr. Stafford's corn crop averaged 254.47 bushels per acre on 71 units of nitrogen and a total input cost of $189.02, or $.74 per bushel. The testing occurred on 10-07-09 and 10-09-09 with an Agriculture Extension Agent from the University of Georgia. The growing conditions were not favorable as little rainfall occurred during the prime growing season, and there were flooding rains at the critical end-of-crop maturity stage. This resulted in a moisture penalty of 14 bushels per acre, and there were 15 bushels not harvestable due to the floods. View the full report here.
2007 Field Corn Trials, Dry Land Farming: Biomass
Field trials were run on field corn varieties that are representative of those grown across the Southeastern United States. Rainfall amounts during testing were at 30% of normal and fell into the “Exceptional” drought level as determined by the Drought Monitor, a nationally recognized organization.
Dee River Ranch located in Aliceville, Alabama, USA used 250 units of nitrogen and had rainfall at levels <30% of normal. The following plots were treated with two foliar applications of 4 ounces each (4+4) per acre. Please note the seed treatment was not administered on these plots. The charts below demonstrate the biomass increases of Accele-Grow supplement treated corn at both 60 days and 120 days (120 days representing mature corn). Different varietals of corn are represented and are differentiated by field name. The difference in varieties of corn attributed to the discrepancy seen in biomass increase.
2007 Field Corn Trials, Dry land Farming: Yields, Crude Protein
Daly Family farms located in Limestone County Alabama, USA used 100 units of N and had rainfall at 20% of normal. Test plots were treated with Accele-Grow supplement as a seed treatment and with two foliar applications of 4 ounces each (S+4+4) per acre. The first chart below shows the value of crude protein available in both treated and untreated values and the second chart represents the yield at bushels per acre for both treated and untreated corn.
