AP quotes Kersbergen in report on corn harvest

The Associated Press quoted Richard Kersbergen, an extension professor of sustainable dairy and forage systems with University of Maine Cooperative Extension, in a report on the summer corn harvest. Maine corn grain growers saw the highest yields ever recorded in the 2018 National Corn Growers Association contest, according to Kersbergen, who said it was the highest yield he has ever seen in Maine. Ryan Crane and Crane Brothers Farm, Inc., in Exeter produced more than 278 bushels of corn per acre in a Livermore field to top the state yield in all categories, AP reported. WABI (Channel 5), Sun Journal, Morning Ag Clips and The News Tribune of Tacoma, Washington carried the AP report.
