About Corn Production Extension
Increasing yield and reducing risks
Research you can use: from crop rotations to irrigation to silage management
Each year, corn is planted on about eight million acres in Minnesota. That's around nine percent of the total U.S. corn acreage. University of Minnesota Extension's corn production program advances this important industry by working with growers to increase productivity and profitability while minimizing economic and environmental risks.
