What was your average corn yield this year? (Leave an estimated number in the comments.)

After a tumultous growing season and the worst drought since the Dust Bowl, we're curious about your average corn yield, as a percentage of normal. This summer we asked for estimates, but now we want to know how it ended up. Did your corn yield 100% of what your normal is? Only 25%? We'd love to know numbers, too, so leave a comment with your overall bushel-per-acre corn average for 2012, as well as your county and state.

Renville County MN blessed with rains back in March/April. Carried us through the drought. Dry part of county avg 150 bpa, higher rainfall areas avg 200+. Feel badly for our neighbors who missed all the rains. We don't have subsoil going into 2013, big concern. Thank God for what he has provided us!!

Any possible diseases like Goss's wilt of stalk rot hit your area to shut down plants prematurely? Other possibilities might be compaction restricting root penetration?
