National Wheat Yield Contest

About the Contest

The National Wheat Foundation hosted the National Wheat Yield Contest for the first time in 2016 and was well-received by wheat growers across the United States, offering growers the opportunity to compete with their peers. The contest allows growers to share and learn innovative techniques to improve wheat productivity on their farms to ensure an ample supply of quality U.S. wheat to reliably meet the needs of the domestic wheat market and our foreign customers.
