One of the greatest stories of agriculture production is the increase in corn yields, year-over-year.

Since the late 1980’s, the average corn yield has increased by about 2 ¼ bushels per acre, per year.

With the merger of major genetics companies, like Pioneer, what is their situation now and what do they project into the future?

Ryan Meyers serves as U.S. corn lead for Pioneer. I spoke to him at the National Association of Farm Broadcasters (NAFB) convention just over a month ago.
