NWF Announces State Winners for the 2020 National Wheat Yield Contest

Mon, 23 Nov 2020 11:12:21 CST

NWF Announces State Winners for the 2020 National Wheat Yield Contest Last week, the National Wheat Foundation (NWF) announced the national winners for the 2020 National Wheat Yield Contest. Today, NWF is announcing the state winners for the 2020 Contest which includes 77 growers from 25 states. The Foundation’s National Wheat Yield Contest offers growers the opportunity to compete with farmers from across the United States and improve their production practices through new and innovative techniques.

“If you asked the general public where they think wheat is grown, they would say states like Kansas or Nebraska,” stated Foundation Board Chairman David Cleavinger. “The National Wheat Yield Contest proves differently and shows the diversity of the wheat crop and that it can be grown from the East to the West Coast and in between.”

The contest recognizes winners in two primary competition categories: winter wheat and spring wheat, and two subcategories: dryland and irrigated.

“NWF would like to thank our sponsors for helping to make the contest available to wheat growers in the U.S. and, again, recognize DTN/The Progressive Farmer as the official publication of the Contest,” continued Cleavinger. “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.”

Winners in Winter Wheat-Dryland Include:
Levi Johnson from Alfalfa, OK with his WestBred Variety, placing 1st
CR Freeman from Kiowa, OK with OK Genetics, placing 2nd
Scott Kodesh, from Noble, OK with the Westbred Variety placing 3rd.

In Winter Wheat--Irrigated:

CR Freeman of Kiowa, OK placed 1st with OK Genetics.

Official rules and entry details for the 2021 Contest will be available by January 1st, 2021 at https://yieldcontest.wheatfoundation.org/.
