Grow Like a Champion!

May 2, 2022

Want to join a few thousand farmers from across the country in a friendly competition? Take part in a tradition that stretches back more than five decades? Grow your knowledge and skills and have fun while doing it?


“The farmers who enter the National Corn Yield Contest (NCYC) build a brighter future for America’s farm families,” said Lowell Neitzel, a Kansas farmer who chairs NCGA’s Member and Consumer Engagement Action Team. “Together, entrants generate a pool of collective knowledge and spark innovation. These champions actively contribute to the advances that will continue to keep U.S. farmers meeting growing demands for feed, fuel and fiber sustainably for generations to come.”


Enter by June 30 to save with a special $75 early entry rate. Entry will remain open at the full rate of $110 through August 17, 2022. All harvest forms will be due by November 30. Contest winners will be announced on December 14.


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. All winners will be honored at Commodity Classic in Orlando, Florida.
