Irrigated corn expected to capture 300+ bushel

Irrigated corn expected to capture 300+ bushel

A multi-year state yield winner says he hasn’t stopped irrigating this season.

Jim Schaendorf tells Brownfield a drought in June and limited rains in July have kept his pivots running.

“I’m pushing that 300-bushel mark right here at the home farm, he shares.  “The farms further away from home, I’ll be happy with about 220.”

He says historical data since 2009 and a good partnership with his crop advisors have been helpful for past state corn and soybean yield wins.
