The National Corn Growers Association reminds growers that the deadline for the 2016 National Corn Yield Contest is just a few weeks away. Online entries must be completed within seven business days of their final yield check, or by November 21, whichever comes first.
The online form can be accessed by farmers and seed representatives with the same login process as the entry form. Submissions must be accompanied by the entrant’s NCGA membership number. A reminder that this year, all harvest documentation must be submitted online, documentation including weight tickets and row lengths. These documents must also be signed by a contest supervisor.
For 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.
Winners earn recognition in the NCYC Corn Yield Guide and other publications, cash trips and awards from sponsoring seed, chemical, and crop protection companies, and will be honored at the 2017 Commodity Classic in San Antonio, Texas.
