Still Time to Enter Soybean Yield Contest
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 10/22/2020

The Wisconsin Soybean Marketing Board continues to encourage growers to participate in the 11th annual Soybean Yield Contest. The program aims to encourage the development of new and innovative management practices and to show the importance of using sound cultural practices in Wisconsin soybean production.

University of Wisconsin-Extension Soybean Specialist Dr. Shawn Conley says the deadline for growers to complete their entry forms will be December 1 or two weeks post field harvest, whichever comes first. The entry fee is $25 per entry.

Two winners from each of the four geographical divisions in the state will receive awards. The contest's top entries in each division will earn a $1,000 cash prize at next year's Wisconsin Corn/Soy Expo, with second-place receiving $500. Winners will be selected for having the highest soybean yield based on bushels per acre at 13-percent moisture.

Also, the first grower in the state who achieves 100 bu/a or more in the contest will be awarded a $2,500 check.

The competition is sponsored by the WSMB, Wisconsin Soybean Association, University of Wisconsin-Extension and UW College of Agricultural and Life Sciences.
