U.S. corn farmers raised the bar in 2021, setting a new record-high national average yield. To highlight the many achievements of corn farmers and explore the data, the National Corn Growers Association delves into the facts about corn production, using a historical comparison in its newest edition of the World of Corn. This statistical look at the corn industry, both domestic and worldwide, features a wide array of information on corn production and usage.
“With weathered hands, a spark in their eye and steel in their spines, corn farmers grow a world of possibilities from the soil. Bone-deep knowledge and unwavering resolve to improve every season grew into a new record-high national average yield at 177 bushels per acre this year,” said NCGA President Chris Edgington and Chief Executive Officer Jon Doggett note in the introduction. “Yet, everything farmers build rests on the legacy bestowed upon them. We build a brighter future for the next generation, using technology and tools unimaginable only a few years ago. Every day we create the World of Corn as a team – no matter how far apart we are.
