The 2020 Wheat Yield Contest has officially closed! October 1st was the deadline for entering harvest data for registered entries. The Contest will be reviewing results, quality test data and eligibility requirements in October. 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.
Results from the wheat grain samples will be available soon from the lab. Afterward, the quality data results for each grower’s entry will be uploaded to the website 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: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: 636-812-2709.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commodity Classic Committee has been meeting to determine just how the Convention will be held. National winners from each category & subcategory will be recognized at the wheat reception during the 2021 Commodity Classic to be held March 4-6, 2021 in San Antonio, TX. Any change to this recognition ceremony, as a result of the pandemic, will be communicated as soon as the details are determined
Thank you for making the Contest a success in its fifth year of operation!
The 2021 National Wheat Yield Contest will open for registration on January 1, 2021.
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!
