Robertus wins state corn yield contest

Tom Robertus of Laurel recently won first place in the No-Till/Strip-Till Irrigated division of the 2016 National Corn Growers Association’s Corn Yield Contest in Montana. Robertus won with Pioneer® brand P9188AM™, which yielded 243.5443 bushels per acre.
Robertus earned one of the 199 state titles won by growers planting Pioneer brand products. Growers planting Pioneer brand products led the contest, winning 58 percent of the 343 state titles awarded this year.
The NCGA Corn Yield Contest is an annual U.S. competition among corn growers with the goal of capitalizing on the high genetic yield potential of today’s corn hybrids. Growers compete in six corn production classes: two for non-irrigated, two for no-till/strip till non-irrigated, one for no-till/strip till irrigated and one for irrigated acres.
“Our 2016 NCGA winners demonstrate the value of our continued investment in germplasm and trait packages, coupled with the unmatched team of local Pioneer professionals. They are with customers throughout the year to help them achieve maximum productivity,” said Steve Reno, DuPont Pioneer vice president, regional director - U.S. and Canada.
DuPont Pioneer is the world’s leading developer and supplier of advanced plant genetics.
