2018 Kansas Corn Yield Contest - Registration deadline is August 30


Kansas Corn, in conjunction with K-State Research and Extension, will conduct a 2018 Kansas Corn Yield Contest. All Kansas corn producers are eligible to enter the contest, but they must be active members of the Kansas Corn Growers Association.

The contest is free of charge to members of the Kansas Corn Growers Association. Pre-registration must be complete by August 30, 2018 or prior to harvest. Farmers that register once can enter up to three fields per registrant/member.

All farmers entering the contest and completing the harvest form will receive a shirt from Kansas Corn. Contest winners will be recognized at the Kansas Corn Symposium in late January 2019.

All entries must be postmarked by December 1, 2018. The contest is divided into “dryland” and “irrigated” categories in all 9 Kansas Crop Reporting Districts plus a 10th district in NNE Kansas (Figure 1).
