Blue Corn

1994

Tickets marked field U-1, A10 & A11 are from the clean fields.

These tickets total 6015 bushels harvested from 85 acres for a yield of 70.76 bushels per acre from the clean fields.

The corn harvested from fields U-2 and U-3 (total acres 245.9) was 7810.77 bushels for a yield of 31.76 bushels per acre.

70.76 bushels per acre minus 31.76 bushels per acre from the weedy fields equals a 39 bushels per acre loss in yield per acre.

39 bushels per acre X 245.9 acres of weedy of weedy fields equal a loss of 9590.10 bushels.

Our price for 1994 blue corn was 25 cents per pound or $14.00 per bushel.

$14.00 per bushel X 9590.10 bushels of loss equals $134,261.40.Loss
