PIONEER corn hybrids have once again dominated the RASQ crop competition by winning both the irrigated and dryland competitions for crops harvested in the 2012 season.
The irrigated maize section of the competition was taken out by Geoff Willett of the Maydan Pastoral Company in Warwick on the southern Darling Downs.
The area of 32P55 was yield tested at 15.114 tonnes per hectare (6.117 tonnes per acre).
The corn had been sown at 50,000 seeds per hectare into 90cm row spacings and most plants grew two large cobs under ideal seasonal conditions.
Mr Crothers also tasted success in the dryland competition with a crop of P1813 IT grown by his parents Jim and Lilian Crothers, north of Warwick, taking first place with a yield of 12.067 tonnes per hectare.
