Online entry now open for National Corn Yield Contest

The online format allows farmers to quickly and easily submit all necessary entry forms while taking advantage of the special early entry discount available until June 15.

The National Corn Growers Association has opened online entry for the 2013 National Corn Yield Contest. 

The online format allows farmers to quickly and easily submit all necessary entry forms while taking advantage of the special early entry discount available until June 15. 

With fees reduced to $80 until that time, NCGA reminds growers that a small time investment now saves money later this summer.

"The online entry option makes taking advantage of the early entry discount easier than ever," said NCGA Production and Stewardship Action Team Chair Dean Taylor.

"As planting season gets under way in many parts of the country, I encourage members to take advantage of the discount, use the easy online form and become a part of the contest. 

“Also, I encourage non-members to explore the many benefits that NCGA members enjoy and consider joining both the association and entering the contest."

The online entry software allows growers to enter the contest and join NCGA and their state association. The web-based system simplifies data submission, allows users to view their submissions at any time and will allow for quick, efficient use of contest data. 

Seed representatives and entrants are welcome to enter through this new platform. Current members should have their NCGA membership ID ready.

Non-members wishing to participate can quickly fill out the online membership profile and enter immediately following completion of this form.

For nearly a half 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.

Winners receive national recognition in publications such as the NCYC Corn Yield Guide, as well as trips or other awards from participating sponsoring seed, chemical and crop protection companies.

Winners also will be recognized during the 2014 Commodity Classic in San Antonio, Texas.
