National Wheat Foundation Yield Contest Deadline August 1

Fri, 10 Jul 2020 09:16:37 CDT

National Wheat Foundation Yield Contest Deadline August 1 The National Wheat Foundation (NWF) is pleased to announce that it is accepting grower enrollment for the 2020 National Wheat Yield Contest! The Contest is divided into two primary competition categories: winter wheat and spring wheat, and two subcategories: dryland and irrigated.

The Foundation is accepting entries for Winter and Spring Wheat. The Spring wheat entry deadline is August 1st.

“Now in its fifth year, we hope to make the National Wheat Yield Contest its most successful yet. We anticipate breaking our record of eligible entries and for the quality criteria to continue to make the Contest more competitive,” stated NWF Board President and Idaho wheat grower Wayne Hurst. “Again, the National Wheat Foundation would like to thank our sponsors for helping to make the Contest available to all wheat growers across the United States.”

As in 2019, the 2020 Contest National Awards will be determined on two levels to improve the competitiveness of the Contest.

Yield basis with no regard for USDA county averages.The Contest will select the highest yielding entry from each State for each category. From this group of entries, National winners will be selected based on the highest yield.
The percentage increase by which their measured yield exceeds the most recent 5-year Olympic county average, published annually by USDA. This level is the same as in the past years. It serves to level the playing field for those growers producing wheat in low yielding regions.
(Each grower can only win one National Award as in past years.)

A grain sample from each Contest entry will be required to determine the quality of wheat produced under high yield management practices used in this wheat yield contest. It is imperative to bring quality top of mind to all wheat growers, and the Foundation believes quality is a necessary part to improve productivity. The submission of grain sample will be a requirement to qualify for national recognition.

The Contest features two primary competition categories: winter wheat and spring wheat, plus two subcategories: dryland and irrigated.There are 24 National Award opportunities for wheat growers.
