  • Developing successful strategies to ensure future increases in crop yield depends, in part, on a better understanding of the basis for past increases. To this end, I compared historical yield trends of two dissimilar crops-corn (Zea mays L.), a high yielding C 4 grass, and soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.], a moderate yielding C 3 legume-in high (Iowa, Illinois, Indiana) and low (Kentucky, Missouri, Tennessee) yield environments. Average state corn yield changed very little from 1866 to 1930, an… CONTINUE READING
