NWF announced the first National Wheat Yield Contest (NWYC) to growers in late February 2015. This contest will help increase U.S. wheat growers’ productivity to ensure an ample supply of quality U.S. wheat to reliably meet the needs of the domestic wheat market and our foreign customers.
The contest will be divided into two divisions for winter and spring wheat with subcategories for dryland and irrigated operations in each division, respectively. Any wheat grower 14 years old and up and a member of a state wheat grower organization or NAWG will be eligible to participate in the contest.

Objectives of the NWYC are:
Drive innovation in the wheat industry
Enable knowledge transfer between growers
Urge experimentation with new technologies
Identify top wheat producers in each state
Through the generous support of industry partners BASF, Monsanto, John Deere and WinField, the Foundation is able to bring this program to our nation’s wheat growers.
