Sorghum yield contest aims to reach 250-bushel mark
With sorghum seed being planted in regions around the country and emerging in many areas as well, National Sorghum Producers would like to remind growers about some significant changes made to this year’s NSP Yield Contest. NSP has set a new yield goal of 250 bushels per acre or more to illustrate sorghum’s yield potential, and 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 a three-year truck lease (Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge, or Toyota) for first place, an all-terrain vehicle for second place and a riding lawn mower for third place.
With the new provisions, there are many new rule changes that growers should be aware of, and NSP asks entrants to pay close attention to this year’s contest rules. Visit http://sorghumgrowers.com/yield-contest/ to learn more, and be sure to read the extended version of the yield contest rule changes. If producers have questions, please call NSP headquarters at 800-658-9808.
