Starting in 2023, the North Carolina wheat yield contest will be administered by the National Wheat Foundation as a part of the National Wheat Yield Contest. The biggest change is the requirement to declare you will be entering the contest by May 15th 2023. At that time the entry fee needs to be paid (early entry by April 1st $100; late entry by May 15th $125 per entry) and the variety you will enter needs to be declared. We have a limited number of entry vouchers available for growers to use and we are encouraging growers to inquire with their seed dealer or brand representative to sponsor their entries. Additional changes are: 1) only one certifier will need to be present in the field with the farmer when the wheat is cut; 2) a wheat quality sample needs to be collected and retained; 3) if a contest entry cuts above 150 bu/acre, a second cut will be required to confirm; and 4) rates of crop protection products are required as part of the production information collected. You can find the full rules for the national wheat yield contest. By entering the national contest, you will automatically be entered into the North Carolina contest if you are an NC grower. If you have questions about this change or about entering the contest, please contact your local county agent or Angela Post (arricha3@nsu.edu). Flyer about the contest.
