Green, Schieber and Steinert Among Top State Winners of National Wheat Foundation Yield Contest

Mon, 19 Nov 2018 14:51:57 CST

Green, Schieber and Steinert Among Top State Winners of National Wheat Foundation Yield Contest Last week, the National Wheat Foundation (NWF) announced the national winners for the 2018 National Wheat Yield Contest. Today, NWF is announcing state winners for the 2018 Contest which includes 82 growers from 23 states.


“It’s great to see winners from such states as New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia who aren’t commonly known for producing wheat,” stated NWF Board President and Idaho wheat grower Wayne Hurst. “It demonstrates the versatility of the crop which can grow in these states and states, like Kansas and Idaho, which are known for being large producers of wheat.”


The contest recognizes winners for each state (those submitted) in two primary competition categories: winter wheat and spring wheat, and two subcategories: dryland and irrigated.


“NWF would like to thank each grower for enrolling in the NWYC and our sponsors for helping to make the Contest available to wheat growers in the US,” continued Hurst. “As the Contest continues to grow, we hope to see growers from new states enter the Contest and include wheat farmers from states not recognized in this year’s batch of winners.”

In Oklahoma, Jesse Green of Lincoln, OK placed first in the state with his Dryland WestBred Winter Wheat; Don Schieber of Tulsa, OK placed second with his Dryland Winter Wheat by OGI; and Adam Steinert of Garfield, OK placed third in the state with his Dryland WestBred Winter Wheat.

The sponsors for the 2018 National Yield Contest are AgriMaxx, Ardent Mills, BASF, Croplan/Winfield, Indigo Ag, Grain Craft, John Deere, LCS, Mennel Milling, Miller Milling, Sygenta, and WestBred.
It should be noted winners are selected by the percentage increase their yield exceeds the most recent 5-year Olympic county average as determined by USDA.



The state winners attending the 2019 Commodity Classic will be recognized during a reception celebrating the Contest and its winners. The 2019 Classic will be held in Orlando, Florida from February 28th – March 2nd. Official rules and entry details for the 2019 Contest will be available by January 1st, 2019 at www.yieldcontest.wheatfoundation.org.
