DES MOINES, Iowa — The National Corn Growers Association announced earlier this month that David Hula of Charles City, Virginia, broke the world corn yield record with 532 bushels per acre. He planted Pioneer P1197AM brand corn on his 2015 contest plot. This is Hula’s third straight year achieving record-breaking yields planting Pioneer brand corn products.
Overall, the eight national and 218 state awards went to growers who used Pioneer brand seed. Along with Hula’s national award-winning yield, 40 state yield contest awards were granted to growers who used products within this family in 2015, including 12 first-place finishes.
