it will do fine we have a couple around here running a 8 row

Width of corn head is 20 feet (8 row @ 30 inches per row) x 5 mph x 5,280 feet per mile. I come up with a total of 528,000 square feet harvested, divided by 43,560 sq. ft. per acre is 12.13 acres per hour. 12.13 acres yielding an average of 200 bushel per acre corn is 2,426 bushels per hour. Does this sound right? Like I said earlier, I am pathetic with math.

My biggest fear if I ever make it on Jeopardy is Alex Trebek saying, "Wow...what a game! The contestants will now make their wagers based on today's Final Jeopardy category, which is...Mathematics."

I'd probably get the question right, but screw up the amount I wagered

I can't help but chuckle at a guy who says he's pathtic at math with ironseller as a handle.

J/K of course.

While you have no math error, you have made an incorrect assumption which would change the area though.

Anyone know what it is?

I was mixing up the theory of corn row picking widths with solid seeding picking widths for acreage calculations.

I ended up thinking a 9 row head instead of an 8.

What an idiot I was!

Sorry guys for sending you on that wild goose chase.

And Ironseller not only is your math fine but your theory was a 100% better than mine too.

I could have went back and just deleted my posts here.

That would have left ironseller, benny and Matt Micklich with posts that made no sense.

That would have been the Bush/Cheney way.
