NWF Announces State Winners for the 2021 National Wheat Yield Contest

Thu, 28 Oct 2021 10:12:42 CDT

NWF Announces State Winners for the 2021 National Wheat Yield Contest - The National Wheat Foundation (NWF) is announcing the state winners for the 2021 Contest which includes 63 growers from 20 states. The Foundation’s National Wheat Yield Contest (NWYC) offers growers the opportunity to compete with farmers from across the United States and improve their production practices through new and innovative techniques. See who won and read more about their entries here

“This year has presented many diverse challenges to farmers,” stated National Wheat Foundation Board Chairman, David Cleavinger. “Drought has plagued most spring wheat growers and many winter wheat farmers faced the exact opposite fighting a wet harvest in multiple areas. These challenges have not only shown the persistence of growers in this industry, but also have highlighted the diversity of wheat which is shown in the range of yields of each region.”

The contest recognizes winners in two primary competition categories: winter wheat and spring wheat, and two subcategories: dryland and irrigated. Grain must be Grade 1 or 2 by Federal Grain Inspection Service (FGIS) standards to be eligible for awards.

“NWF would like to thank each grower for enrolling in the NWYC and thank our sponsors for helping to make the Contest available to wheat growers in the United States. There were 387 entries for the contest this year, spring wheat entries were down a little, due to the drought,” stated David Cleavinger. “Yields and quality were excellent in this year’s entries and contestants tell us they are continuing to learn how to increase yields and quality on their farms.”

The sponsors for the 2021 National Yield Contest are AgriMaxx, Ardent Mills, BASF, Croplan/Winfield, Elevate Ag, Grain Craft, GrainSense, John Deere, Miller Milling, Michigan Wheat, Nutrien, Ohio Corn and Wheat, and WestBred.
