WIMBELDON, N.D. — Rob Hanson, the North Dakota Corn Growers Association president, reports an update on corn harvest 2021 from his farm, near Wimbledon, ND.
Rob reports, “The corn crop in east-central North Dakota is around 30% below average yields this year, but great quality. Corn is coming off the fields between 16-20% moisture, which is a great range for harvesting efficiency and a bonus as it flows through the dryer rather quickly. Test weights are in the 56–58-pound area which is a sign of great quality corn for ethanol, our cattle feeders, and for exports to our customers. With the good quality corn this year I see no problem at all with on-farm storage.”
The North Dakota Corn Growers Association (NDCGA) is the farmer-led organization focusing on policy that impacts North Dakota corn producers. The NDCGA consists of fourteen growers from seven districts along with three at-large directors and three industry representatives. The NDCUC and NDCGA work together to grow a healthy, profitable business climate for northern corn.
