The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) recognized Iowa Corn Growers Association members as winners of the 2018 National Corn Yield Contest (NCYC). The top four winners in each category were recognized during the 2019 Commodity Classic in Orlando, Florida at the beginning of the month.
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.
