We consider uniformly elliptic coefficient fields that are randomly distributed according to a stationary ensemble of a finite range of dependence. We show that the gradient ϕ of the corrector ϕ, when spatially averaged over a scale R 1 decays like Rα for any α<d 2. We establish these rates on the level of Gaussian bounds in terms of the stochastic integrability.
