The premier event of every corn growing season since 1965, the National Corn Yield Contest (NCYC) offers challenges and rewards to each entrant! In 2011, a record 8,425 growers accepted the challenge to test their corn production skill and knowledge by competing with proven winners to reach the ultimate goal of CHAMPION. NCGA wants to challenge you to take advantage of this opportunity to explore new ideas and production techniques, while gleaning knowledge to enhance your future yield potential.
Winners will receive national recognition in publications, such as the NCYC Corn Yield Guide, as well as other awards from participating sponsoring seed, chemical and crop protection companies. At each Commodity Classic, state winners are recognized at the NCYC Breakfast and national winners receive awards at the evening Awards Banquet.
