dt4020 - 6/28/2020 17:54 Id say anybody under 200 aph is fringe. Doesn't make them lesser in terms of cost per bushel, just strictly a production metric. So a pretty broad region. Corn belt would include E Neb, Far SE S Dak, S MN, IA, IL, IN. OH covers most of it imo.
I'm in Iowa and by that metric we have ground in the "corn belt" and ground in the "fringe". Those acres are less than a mile apart and all in Iowa.
Contrary to popular belief (esp by absentee landlords), not every acre in Iowa is good corn ground.
