National Wheat Foundation opens its 2020 wheat yield contest


The National Wheat Foundation is accepting grower enrollment for the 2020 National Wheat Yield Contest. The contest is divided into two primary competition categories, winter wheat and spring wheat, and two subcategories, dryland and irrigated.

The deadline for winter wheat entries is May 15 with an early registration deadline of April 1. The spring wheat entry deadline is August 1, with an early registration deadline of June 15.

Every year, the National Wheat Yield Contest offers growers the opportunity to compete with their peers across the United States and learn from each other innovative techniques to improve wheat productivity on their farms.

You must be a member in good standing of a recognized state wheat grower association (or NAWG if from a state without a state wheat grower association) before completing and submitting the National Wheat Yield Contest Entry Form. All contest entries and Harvest Report Forms, entry payments, and weigh tickets must be submitted electronically

The winners from each category & subcategory will be recognized at the wheat reception during the 2021 Commodity Classic to be held March 4 to 6, 2021, in San Antonio.
