The online harvest entry is now available to all NCGA members entered in the 2020 National Corn Yield Contest. The yield threshold for a required recheck is now 325.0000 bushels per acre or greater, increased from 300 bushels per acre. Please consider the availability of supervisors this harvest year. With many government offices under restrictions due to COVID-19, it is important to begin conversations with potential yield check supervisors early.

The contest winners will be announced on December 14.


The premier event of every corn growing season since 1965, the National Corn Yield Contest offers challenges and rewards to each entrant! In 2019, 7,454 growers accepted the challenge to their corn production skills knowledge by competing with one another in a friendly yet exciting way.


NCGA challenges you to take advantage of this opportunity to explore new ideas and production technologies while gleaning knowledge to enhance your future yield potential. Winners will receive national recognition in publications, such as the NCYC Corn Yield Guide, as well as other awards from participating sponsoring seed, chemical and crop protection companies. State winners will be honored at Commodity Classic in San Antonio, Texas at the NCYC Breakfast and national winners receive awards at the evening Awards Banquet.
