The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) recognized four Iowa Corn Growers Association members as winners of the 2015 National Corn Yield Contest (NCYC) during the 2016 Commodity Classic in New Orleans, Louisiana last week.
These selected farmers accepted honors for their ability to produce the most corn per-acre, which lends itself to fueling and feeding the world. NCYC not only grants the participants the recognition that they deserve, it also gives them the opportunity to learn from their peers.
Top yield winners from Iowa include:
Contest winners will also receive national recognition in publications such as the NCYC Corn Yield Guide, as well as cash trips and other awards from participating sponsoring seed, chemical and crop protection companies.
The National Corn Yield Contest, now in its 51st year, remains one of NCGA’s most popular programs for members. In 2015, 7,729 members participated and recorded an all-time high yield at just over 532 bushels per acre.
