North Dakota Corn Council Executive Director Jean Henning is pleased with the state’s corn harvest. “Most people that I’ve talked to are between 55 and 60 pound test weight so no test weight issues,” said Henning. “For yield, I’m hearing about 143 (bushels per acre) for the average; when we consider the drought last year and yields of 105 (bushels per acre), we’re pretty happy about average yields of 143 bushels per acre.” North Dakota will likely see an increase in corn acres in 2023. “I think we’ll get back the acres that we lost last spring with all those prevent plant acres.”
