National Corn Yield Contest Entry Now Open

With planting well underway in much of the country, the National Corn Growers Association invites farmers to register early for NCGA's National Corn Yield Contest and save big on entry fees. Until June 16, fees will be reduced to $75. NCGA reminds growers that a small time investment now saves money later this summer.

"While it may still seem a ways out, we all know how quickly the time passes once planting season starts," said Production and Stewardship Action Team Chair Don Glenn. "Every year, we gain valuable data from the contest that help develop the production practices of tomorrow. I urge those who haven't entered before to become NCGA members and try their hand at high-yield techniques as contest entrants in 2014."

To enter today using the online form, click here. Members should have received a paper copy in the mail. Membership information was included for entry. NCGA will also release a version of the online form suitable for use on mobile devices in the near future.

Entry will remain open at the full rate of $110 through August 1. All harvest forms will be due by November 21. Contest winners will be announced on December 19.

NCGA reminds farmers that there have been updates to the rules for the 2014 National Corn Yield Contest. In addition to moving to a solely online entry platform, contest rules have been revised to further ensure contest integrity while also accommodating for technological advances to make participation easier.
