California is currently leading the country with the highest reported average yield for corn.

Although it's still early in the season, California corn growers are averaging about 240 bushels per acre -- and in Tulare County, that number is even higher at 262 bushels per acre.

Growers say those averages are significantly higher than other parts of the country which only average about 158 bushels per acre.
