NE Texas corn yields surprisingly good


In spite of too little rain, a late start, including a spring freeze, Northeast Texas corn producers are finishing up what many believe to be a good corn year.

Jim Swart, Texas AgriLife Extension  integrated pest management specialist for the Northern Blacklands region, says producers are averaging close to 100 bushels per acre and that “one more rain” would have pushed production close to “bumper crop” status.
