Friday deadline for early corn yield entries

Corn farmers have until Friday, July 10, for early entries in the National Corn Growers Association’s National Corn Yield Contest.

To be eligible for the $75 entry fee rate, mailed entries must be postmarked or submitted online no later than that date, according to the NCGA. The online entry form is now functional, and the final deadline for entries is Aug. 1.

State and national corn yield contest winners will receive recognition in publications, such as the NCYC Corn Yield Guide and at the National Awards Banquet and State Awards Breakfast at the 2010 Commodity Classic in Anaheim, Calif.

Grower participation also benefits the entire industry because NCGA utilizes the wealth of information from the contest to study production trends. Growers’ information is used by NCGA and others to statistically demonstrate the production efficiencies of corn growers and their dedication to soil and nutrient conservation.

For more information on the National Corn Yield Contest and to find the online entry form, go to 2009 NCGA Corn Yield Contest.
