The National Sorghum Producers Yield Contest provides sorghum farmers with the opportunity to showcase their sorghum crop, competing with farmers across the Sorghum Belt. This contest allows our industry to recognize some of the best growers in the U.S. and helps farmers to grow and learn from one another.
NSP Yield Contest winners are recognized each year at an awards banquet in conjunction with Commodity Classic, to be held next year in San Antonio, Texas. They are also recognized in the spring edition of Sorghum Grower magazine, NSP’s weekly e-newsletter Sorghum Notes and on the NSP website.
National Sorghum Producers has set a yield goal of 250 bushels per acre or more to illustrate sorghum’s yield potential. All division placings will be determined by yield only. NSP is offering incentives with support from the United Sorghum Checkoff Program to award growers who reach this new benchmark. Contestants successfully participating in this category will receive:

National Sorghum Producers recently announced a new program, the Sorghum Shootout, to provide a forum for sorghum growers across the country to be exposed to some of the best management practices needed to reach the highest yields in sorghum production year after year. StollerUSA, NSP’s newest gold partner, will serve as the program sponsor of the Sorghum Shootout.
Beginning in May, the Sorghum Shootout will chronicle the intense management styles of award-winning growers such as Steven Albracht (Hart, Tex.) and Tim Fisher (Wynne, Ark.) on their journey to hit milestone records while using ROI-driven techniques and inputs. Followers will get a sneak peek into the intense management styles each grower utilizes throughout the year as they identify their goals, face real-time challenges, develop strategies to overcome those challenges and make in-season adjustments to maximize yield potential. To receive regular updates on the progression of each grower, please sign up here.
Information on the 2017 contest will be available soon!
