The National Wheat Foundation has also announced the state winners, which includes 77 growers from 25 states.

“If you asked the general public where they think wheat is grown, they would say states like Kansas or Nebraska,” said National Wheat Foundation Board Chairman David Cleavinger. “The National Wheat Yield Contest proves differently and shows the diversity of the wheat crop and that it can be grown from the East to the West Coast and in between.”
