Deadline Approaching (8/1/13) for Entering the 2013 Wisconsin Soybean Association Yield Contest

Late planting and overall wet conditions across many areas in WI have dampened (unfortunate but true pun) the excitement of last year’s yield contest where the 1st place winner in Division 4, Bahr Farms of Belmont grew Trelay 24RR19 and harvested 82.6 bu/a. In Division 3, RnK DeVoe Farms of Monroe won 1stplace with Pioneer 93Y43 at 75.2 bu/a while Division 2 winner, Jerry Koser of Almena achieved 73.7 bu/a from Pioneer 91M10. Last but not least Kloos Acres from Stratford took Division 1 at 61.2 bu/a planting Pioneer 91Y30. If we do get into a normal rainfall pattern there is still significant yield to be gained so as a friendly reminder:

  • The deadline to enter the 2013 WI Soybean Yield Contest is 8/1/13. 
  • The objective of this contest is to encourage the development of new and innovative management practices and to show the importance of using sound cultural practices in WI soybean production. 
  • Districts are based on long term county soybean yield averages (Image 1 below). 
  • For more information please see the contest brochure or review contest rules and entry form.
