NCYC Guide Archives

Entries with an Asterisk (*): National Corn Yield Contest rules state that each individual membership is eligible to win only one national and one state trophy in the contest.  If an entrant enters two or more hybrids and all place as a winner or runner-up, a trophy will be awarded only for the highest ranked (not necessarily highest yield) hybrid.  We use the asterisk (*) to indicate that there is an entry under the same membership number that has placed higher and been awarded a trophy, which in turn knocks out the asterisked entries from being awarded a trophy.   For questions contact   2021 NCYC Contest   2021 National Corn Yield Contest Guide   2020 NCYC CONTEST 2020 National Corn Yield Contest Guide   2019 NCYC Contest   2019 National Corn Yield Contest Guide        2018 NCYC Contest 2018 National Corn Yield Contest Guide   2017 NCYC Contest 2017 National Corn Yield Contest Guide   2016 NCYC Contest 2016 National...

4-Time National Corn Yield Contest Record Holder David Hula's Winning Formula, EP. 33 Wherever Jon May Roam


Along the banks of the James River in Virginia, David Hula is harvesting some real bin-busters.


The NCGA National Corn Yield Contest is an annual tradition that dates back to 1965.


But in that time, no one has had quite the sustained success as Charles City, Virginia’s David Hula, who has won the contest with record-setting yields on four separate occasions.


In episode 33, we talk to David about his formula for success, which includes a combination of precisely-targeted fertilizer applications and a blend of strip-till and no-till.


Plus, we discuss the unique environmental challenges he faces as he works tirelessly to preserve water quality in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, and how his farm traces its historic roots back to a time when growers planted a dead catfish with their corn seed.
