The weather has posed a challenge for farmers in many states this year, prompting the National Corn Growers Association to extend the harvest deadline for the National Corn Yield Contest. The new deadline will be Saturday, November 30, 2019, at 5 p.m. Central Standard Time.
Entrants need to upload weigh tickets and the yield calculation worksheet that outlines the number of rows harvested and the length of each pass. Both documents must be signed by the contest supervisor. For detailed contest information and harvest rules, click here. If you have specific questions, call the direct call line at 636-733-5518 or email email@example.com.
The deadline extension is not expected to impact the announcement of winners on Monday, December 16. Winners will be recognized at Commodity Classic in San Antonio, Texas. This is the 55th year of the National Corn Yield Contest.
