How much water does an acre of corn use?



  1. 0 Votes

    Using the math of 183 bushels per acre, the article below claimed that a 200-bushel corn crop uses about 600,000 gallons of water –nearly 3,000 gallons per bushel. That means there would be 549,000 gallons for an acre of corn. Corn burns off and its leaves vaporize a lot of the water, which is why a good, high yielding crop will use 22 to 23 inches of water. Having sufficient water for a large corn field is potentially a resource draining endeavor in a lot of cases.
