National Sorghum Producers is extending the entry deadline for the Sorghum Yield Contest to Nov.15.

“This has been an unusual and difficult growing season,” says Craig Meeker, NSP chairman. “We are extending the yield contest entry deadline to provide sorghum producers more time to assess their fields and enter the contest.”

The 10-day waiting period between submission of the entry form and the harvest report has been eliminated for this year’s contest. Harvest reports were made available to contest entrants beginning Oct. 16, and all forms must be received at the NSP office or postmarked no later than Nov. 25.

Yield contestants are split into east and west regions for each division. Contest divisions include irrigated, dryland no-till and dryland tillage, and one winner is selected for the food-grade division.

The goal of the yield contest is to increase grower yields, transfer knowledge among growers to enhance management and identify sorghum producers who excel in each state and throughout the country. In order to enroll, a contestant must be a paid NSP member at the time of entry. More than one member of a family may enroll, but each member must have a separate membership. All entries will be reviewed, and divisions will be placed from yield only. National and state winners will be recognized at the 2023 Commodity Classic in Orlando, Fla.

To find the entry form, 2022 yield contest rules and more information, visit sorghumgrowers.com/yield-contest or call the NSP office at 806-749-3478.
