2018 Delmarva Corn Harvest Results and Planting Recommendations

MORE YIELD, LESS MOISTURE, MORE INCOME PER ACRE!!!

Our 2018 corn harvest results are in, and no doubt this has been a challenging growing year for most here on the Delmarva Peninsula. Starting in May, some areas received 20-30 inches of rain over a 4-5 week period, followed by hot and dry conditions in June. Then the rain started again mid-summer and didn’t let up. Many fields suffered from water saturation and leached fertility, not to mention disease pressure which was very high. Overall it was an average to below average corn crop. Hopefully, most of you can see the end in sight and can move on to 2019!

This harvest results summary will provide you will some idea of corn performance across the Delmarva for the year. When looking at plot data, always look at more than one plot location and more than one year. Multiple plots over multiple years is always a good winning strategy. Harvest results from a single plot can be misleading.

AXIS 62A28 – STANDOUT CORN PERFORMANCE

We are excited about the exceptional performance we’ve seen with 62A28 across the Delmarva. This hybrid was new in 2018 with a limited launch. It offers superior yield potential for irrigated and dryland acres. 62A28 has great grain quality and test weight along with excellent stalks and a very good disease package. Two-year performance on this hybrid has been outstanding. 62A28 will make an excellent companion to 57H25, 60K23, 64K24, 64D25 and 65H25.
