Pennsylvania Five-Acre Corn Contest Results

Pennsylvania Five Acre Corn Contest Results

GRANTVILLE (Dauphin Co.) _ The Pennsylvania Corn and Soybean Conference drew more than 125 producers and industry representatives to a one-day event conducted here at the Holiday Inn.

The Pennsylvania Corn Growers Association (PCGA), Pennsylvania Soybean Board, and Penn State Cooperative Extension sponsored the event.

Contest results are also a highlight of the conference. There were 84 participants in the Five-Acre Corn Club Contest, according to PCGA president Guy Wagner. Even though the numbers ""were a little off'' in comparison to other years, yields were better than expected in view of the dry growing season, he said.
