Wheat Yield Contest Form Online

Chad Lee, Extension Agronomist, University of Kentucky

The 2014 Kentucky Extension Wheat Production Contest Rules are available online at the Grain Crops Extension Yield Contest home page. Completed entry forms must be postmarked by July 25, 2014 to be accepted.

The Kentucky Extension Wheat Contest began in 1987 and the highest yield that year was 89.10 bushels per acre submitted by Johnny Dawson. In 1997 the contest began providing awards for tillage and no-tillage divisions. In 2013, Jeff Coke of Daviess County produced the highest overall yield of 121.80 bushels per acre. In 2008, 2009 and 2010, a no-tillage entry one the highest overall yield. For the last three years, a tillage entry has won the highest overall yield.
