Many Ohio farmers are reporting good to excellent wheat ratings this spring. Couple good looking wheat with a nice run-up in price and this may be the year that you want to enter the National Wheat Yield Contest!

The contest is a friendly competition that will help farmers stay focused on raising high quality, high yielding wheat while evaluating agronomic and economic decisions at the field level.  Each registered contestant must be a member of their state’s wheat growers association (in Ohio, www.ohiocornandwheat.org). Contestants can enter more than one variety but each variety has an entry fee of $125.

In Ohio, each district’s 1st and 2nd place winners will be recognized at the 2022 Celebration of Ohio Corn & Wheat, and will receive recognition for themselves and their seed dealers.  The overall Ohio winner will a 1-year free lease on a seed tender from J & M Manufacturing.  The Ohio runner-up will receive free fungicide from BASF.  National winners traditionally receive a trip to the March 2022 Commodity Classic, which will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana.
