About Yield Contest

Showcasing Top Sorghum Yields Across the Nation

In 1985, there were more than 18 million acres of grain sorghum planted in the U.S. The National Sorghum Producers (NSP) Yield Contest was started to increase membership, and educate producers on new management techniques.

Today, the 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.
