The 2018 Kansas Corn Yield Contest is sponsored by Kansas Corn and K-State Research and Extension. The contest will award a dryland and irrigated winner in each of the districts. The districts align with crop reporting districts, plus a NNE district that includes Doniphan and parts of Brown and Atchison counties. In addition, one statewide dryland and one statewide irrigated winner will be announced. Cash prizes will be awarded at the district and state levels.
All Kansas corn farmers are eligible to enter the contest, but must be KCGA members or join KCGA. A one-year membership is $50 and a three-year membership is $110, but the three-year also includes a voucher for a free bag of seed along with our other perks exclusive to KCGA members.
If you are seed representative or other industry partner and would like to sponsor a farmer’s membership, you must provide use with the sponsorship membership form completed for the farmer. The contact information must be for the farmer, not the seed representative. Please ensure it has the billing information of where to send the invoice. If you have more than 10 farmers you would like to sponsor, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 785-410-5009 to talk with Stacy Moorberg, our programs coordinator.
Registration must be complete by August 30, 2018 (or if harvest is before deadline, two weeks before harvest.) Harvest entry forms must be postmarked by December 1, 2018.
Contest winners will be recognized at the Kansas Corn Symposium (late January 2019)
The awards are as follows: 1st place – $300 and a plaque, 2nd place – $200 and a certificate, and 3rd place – $100, plus a certificate.
The overall highest yields in the dryland and irrigated categories each will receive an additional $500 prize.
