By Jim Wold | May 31, 2022
Each year the National Corn Gowers Association (NCGA) has held yield contests for various states and tillage classes (See contest rules). Legacy Seeds is a proud supporter of the NCGA corn yield contest again this year.
There are some basic entry rules that apply to all contestants no matter what state you are from. The early entry deadline is June 30, 2022, with a cost of $75 per entry. If you enter after June 30, 2022, but by August 17, 2022, the entry fee increases to $110 per entry. Each participant must be a paid state and national NCGA member until the following April 1 (2023) to participate in the 2022 yield contest. Harvest deadlines and data submission will need to be completed by 4:30pm Central time on November 30, 2022.
There are state and national cash prizes awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishes from National Corn Growers Association. If you enter a Legacy Seeds corn hybrid for the 2022 contest, Legacy Seeds will also pay the entrant $1000 for winning a state level category. Just for entering the competition and completing the contest through to harvest, Legacy Seeds will provide each contestant a bag of any Legacy Seeds high performing hybrids to plant in 2023.
