Corn yield contest winner announced
The National Corn Growers Association says the 2020 national corn yield contest winner is from Michigan. Don Stall from Charlotte, southwest of Lansing produced the highest yield growing 476.9 bushels per acre.
NCGA says there were 27 national winners in 9 production categories with verified yields averaging more than 345 bushels per acre.
Winners receive awards from sponsoring seed, chemical, and crop protection companies as well as recognition during Commodity Classic in March. NCGA says with a virtual 2021 Commodity Classic, they are working with sponsors to find an alternative way to recognize this year’s contest winners.
