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.

Tazewell County, Illinois. Actual yield was 90% of normal. I checked 100% since that was the closest option.

Not easy to pick a percent from your chart as our average dry yield was 62.6% of the average of the past 8 years' corn yield. The first field we harvested averaged 50 bpa dry, working our way up to the last field was 130 bpa.
