Time is running out to submit harvest results for the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) National Corn Yield Contest (NCYC). Entries are due Monday, November 30, 2020 at 5 P.M.CST.
“2019 was another record-breaking year and I am excited to see what yield results we get in this year,” said NCYC Manager Linda Lambur. “The corn yield contest serves as an opportunity for corn growers to not only learn from their peers, but compete with their colleagues to grow the most corn per acre while meeting the growing demand for food, feed, fuel and fiber.”
Harvest entries can be submitted online here. Login for the site is your membership number and postal code. The contest email address is firstname.lastname@example.org if any assistance is needed. 2020 NCYC results will be released on Monday, December 14. Winners will receive national recognition in publications, such as the NCYC Corn Yield Guide. This is the 56th year of the Corn Yield Contest.

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