The Washington County Corn Growers were recently awarded. They are Iowa Corn District 9’s winners of the Premier County Achievement Award for 2016. The award was presented for the group’s promotion of Iowa Corn throughout the year. The Washington County Corn Growers sponsor a $500 scholarship to a graduating senior in the county, donate to the Washington County fair promotions, sponsor farm safety bags given to area farmers during harvest, host a RAGBRAI event and network at the state, national and international levels. Last year, Washington County’s average yield for corn was 195 bushels per acre.
