The National Corn Growers Association released a video last week offering tips from perennial high-yield entrants of the National Corn Yield Contest during a breakfast at Commodity Classic in San Antonio honoring the state winners of the 2019 contest. The new video, which accompanies the traditional online NCYC Guide, offers farmers across the country a chance to apply the tips learned through the contest to their own operations to improve their yields and their bottom line.

The National Corn Yield Contest is now in its 55th year and remains NCGA’s most popular program for members.
For more than half of a century, NCGA’s National Corn Yield Contest has provided corn growers the opportunity to compete with their colleagues to grow the most corn per acre, helping feed and fuel the world. This has given participants not only the recognition they deserved but the opportunity to learn from their peers.
Watch NCGA News of the Day for further information on entering the 2020 contest, which will post entry information online near the middle of this spring.

Long term, we’re focused on creating solutions to help corn farmers and our customers recover from the financial impacts of this crisis.
