The 2019 Wheat Yield Contest has officially closed! October 1st was the deadline for entering harvest data for registered entries. Both State and National Winners will be notified individually at least by late November, and the results will be posted on this website shortly after.
All wheat grain samples submitted from entries have been analyzed. The quality data results for each grower's entry have been uploaded and can be viewed by logging in to your account. If you have any questions about the quality data results, Contest Rules and processes, you can reach me through email: email@example.com or by phone: 636-812-2709
Remember, the national winners from each category will be recognized at the 2020 Commodity Classic, along with the overall high yield winners for dryland AND irrigated wheat. This year's Classic will be held Feb.27 - February 29, 2020 in San Antonio, Texas.
Thank you for making the Contest a success in its fourth year of operation! This year the contest had 397 entries from 29 wheat producing states.
The 2020 National Wheat Yield Contest will open for registration on January 1, 2020.
The 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. The Contest’s objectives are to drive innovation in the industry; enable knowledge transfer between growers; encourage the use of available technology; and identify top wheat growers across the U.S. The Contest features two primary competition categories: winter wheat and spring wheat, and two subcategories: dryland and irrigated. The Contest will also recognize the overall high yield winners for irrigated and dryland wheat.
Each entry must be a member in good standing of a recognized state wheat grower association (or NAWG if from a state without a recognized state wheat grower association) to be eligible. All Harvest Report Forms, entry payments and weigh tickets must be submitted electronically. NO PAPER HARVEST FORMS OR CHECKS WILL BE ACCEPTED. Please read all National Wheat Yield Contest Rules and Procedures located on this registration/log in page before submitting your harvest form. There will be no entry payment refunds in the event the entry was not taken to harvest. Thanks for your interest in the NWYC and good luck!
