I was walking through Farmfest several years ago. Local big outdoor summer at show here.
Went past a new corn head that was folded up. A fairly new idea back a few years ago. The snoots were all different angles as the folding was being shown, and the snoots were different angles.
Two older farmers were walking by, one said what is that?
Other fella looked over and without missing a beat said, oh that is the new head design to harvest Pioneer corn.
I laughed out loud, had to wait a minute to explain to my wife what I was laughing at.
Pioneer is good corn in some areas not far from here, on even soil types. On the variable soil and ph and water holding soils in my small neighborhood, it is just commonplace to make fun of how Pioneer drops ears, falls over. It is expected Common quip here.
Their design is to burn up the stalk to make bigger ears. Cool where it works. It’s an understandable and reasonable effort to give more bushels. Where it works.
You won’t try that stuff a second time where it fails spectacularly!
