Subject: RE: Would cha ?

southern MN
One year my micro seed company had a breeding hiccup and one corn yielded 20 (physical) bushels an acre less than one would expect. That was alarming as one could see the ears were different, and the combine hopper wouldn’t fill up.

But, the corn ended up testing 61-63 test weight, you could see the wagon tires bulge and the elevator guy even commented the grain leg pulled more amps that year when dumping my corn.

The savings in handling and hauling, along with the heavy test weight, made that a good yielding and profitable corn even tho the pile of corn looked smaller. Several of us customers esp livestock fellas asked for it again the following year, but they were really scared of why it did what it did and was never seen again.

I suspect there is a twist or gotcha in your question, but I would rather have the heavy test weight drier corn on face value.
