Sorghum Yield Contest Entry Deadline Extended
LUBBOCK, Texas (October 12, 2022)—National Sorghum Producers is extending the entry deadline for the Sorghum Yield Contest to November 15.
“This has been an unusual and difficult growing season,” NSP Chairman Craig Meeker said. “We are extending the yield contest entry deadline to provide sorghum producers more time to assess their fields and enter the contest.”
The 10-day waiting period between submission of the entry form and the harvest report has been eliminated for this year’s contest. Harvest reports were made available to contest entrants beginning October 16, and all forms must be received at the NSP office or postmarked no later than November 25.
Yield contestants are split into east and west regions for each division. Contest divisions include irrigated, dryland no-till and dryland tillage, and one winner is selected for the food grade division.
To find the entry form, 2022 yield contest rules and more information, interested contestants can visit www.sorghumgrowers.com/yield-contest/ or contact the NSP office at 806-749-3478.
