Description

Corn yields in Iowa continue at a rate of 2 bushels per acre per year. This is a trend that started back in the 1940's. Driven by hybrid genetic improvement and management the question we need to address is: Are these yield trends sustainable into the future? Will these yield trends continue to increase? If so, for how long7 We can think of yield in four different ways. Yield trends for two of these four are increasing while two are not:
