Kansas Corn Yield Contest: Early deadline June 30

 

The Kansas Corn Yield Contest is joined with the National Corn Yield Contest (NCYC). Kansas growers who enter the NCYC are automatically entered in the Kansas Corn Yield Contest. To participate in the Kansas contest, you must enter NCYC. This simplifies entries for growers and builds Kansas participation in both contests.

The Kansas Corn Yield Contest is sponsored by Kansas Corn and K-State Research and Extension. The Kansas Corn Yield Contest, gives Kansas farmers an opportunity to compete for cash prizes and recognition and see how their yields stack up against other growers in their area.

This contest:

• recognizes Kansas farmers achieving high corn yields,

• shares crop management and efficiency data among Kansas growers, and

• provides on-farm sustainability and profitability insights.

All corn farmers are eligible to enter to the contest, but must be members of KCGA/NCGA. Your KCGA membership also includes membership in NCGA. Join here.
