The National Corn Growers Association released a video last week offering tips from perennial high-yield entrants of the National Corn Yield Contest, like 2015 record-setter David Hula of Charles City, Virginia who topped 532 bushels per acre last year.
The new video, which accompanies the traditional online NCYC Guide, offers farmers across the country a chance to apply the tips learned through the contest to their own operations to improve their yields and their bottom line. The National Corn Yield Contest is now in its 51st year and remains NCGA’s most popular program for members. Participation in the contest remained strong in 2015 with 7,729 entries received.
For more than half of a century, NCGA’s National Corn Yield Contest has provided corn growers the opportunity to compete with their colleagues to grow the most corn per acre, helping feed and fuel the world. This has given participants not only the recognition they deserved, but the opportunity to learn from their peers.
