Farmers in North Dakota and South Dakota produced yields of 299+ bushels per acre in the National Corn Yield Contest this year.

The top yield in North Dakota was 299.78 bushels per acre, while the top yield in South Dakota was 299.33 bushels per acre. Both were in the non-irrigated category of the contest.

Steve Huber of Berlin was the winner in North Dakota, and Scott McKee of Hawarden, Iowa, (he farms in South Dakota) was the winner in South Dakota.

Both men have won the state yield title before.

Four other South Dakota cracked the 290-bushel yield mark this year. They were Kory Standy of Platte, Travis Mockler of Centerville, Steve Breding of Chamberlain and Dean Bosse of Elk Point.

In North Dakota, Betty Huber of Berlin — who farms with her husband Steve Huber — had two 298 bushel per acre entries.

There are four divisions in the contest — non-irrigated, no-till/strip till non-irrigated, irrigated, and no-till/strip till irrigated.

The 2018 South Dakota and North Dakota corn yield contest winners by division, with seed brand, hybrid and yield, are:
