Entries with an Asterisk (*): National Corn Yield Contest rules state that each individual membership is eligible to win only one national and one state trophy in the contest.  If an entrant enters two or more hybrids and all place as a winner or runner-up, a trophy will be awarded only for the highest ranked (not necessarily highest yield) hybrid.  We use the asterisk (*) to indicate that there is an entry under the same membership number that has placed higher and been awarded a trophy, which in turn knocks out the asterisked entries from being awarded a trophy.   For questions contact   2020 NCYC CONTEST 2020 National Corn Yield Contest Guide   2019 NCYC Contest   2019 National Corn Yield Contest Guide        2018 NCYC Contest 2018 National Corn Yield Contest Guide   2017 NCYC Contest 2017 National Corn Yield Contest Guide   2016 NCYC Contest 2016 National Corn Yield Contest Guide   2015 NCYC Contest 2015 National  Corn...
