It’s a good time to start thinking about the Wisconsin Soybean Yield Contest 2021!
Dr. Shawn Conley, UW-Extension Soybean Specialist, oversees the contest and reminds growers that the goal is to highlight new, innovative crop development practices that focus on sound cultural practices. Any soybean production system can be entered.
Conley says fields that qualify must be in Wisconsin, and must consist of at least 5 continuous acres of the same variety. He also notes that contestants agree to provide planting and management information to help expand the scope of information the program’s gaining.
Conley also reminds potential participants to think ahead on how they’ll verify entry information. The Wisconsin Soybean Yield Contest requires a supervisor to oversee all computations, and field measurements, and must be present during the harvest, weighing and moisture testing.
