Wheat Yield Contest results

  • Updated
Trophy

One of the Nebraska farmers to have competed in the National Wheat Foundation’s annual Wheat Yield Contest is Brent Robertson who farms near Elsie, Nebraska. He won the dryland spring wheat yield contest last year.

Robertson said the contest requires farmers to report all data concerning management practices used. A third party oversees the harvest. The results, including the protein quality component are then submitted, he said.

“It’s not just about growing more wheat – it’s about growing better wheat,” Robertson said. “It’s a lot of fun.”

Winners for 2020 are announced in November.
