HARRISBURG, PA (August 12, 2019) – Although harvest is still a number of weeks away, the deadline for entering the Pennsylvania Soybean Yield Contest is nearing. Pennsylvania growers are encouraged to enter the contest now. The deadline to enter is September 1, 2019 while the deadline for submitting the grower’s actual harvest yield report is November 15, 2019.
The Pennsylvania Soybean Yield Contest is designed to focus farmer attention on agronomic and management skills that will increase soybean yields and profitability. The contest is sponsored by the Pennsylvania Soybean Board in association with Penn State University Extension.
Contest rules encourage producers from throughout the state to enter. The contest recognizes not only the state-wide grand champion, but also the top growers in each of five regions of Pennsylvania.
The top producer in each region will win a trip to the Commodity Classic, the annual joint convention of the American Soybean Association, National Corn Growers Association, National Association of Wheat Growers, and the National Grain Sorghum Producers, to be held in 2020 in San Antonio, Texas.
