RITZVILLE – The National Wheat Foundation is accepting grower enrollment for the 2022 National Wheat Yield Contest.
The contest is divided into two primary competition categories: winter wheat and spring wheat, and two subcategories: dryland and irrigated.
The 2022 National Wheat Yield Contest will add a new quality component.
The 24 yield winners’ wheat will be tested for baking and milling qualities and if it meets all the criteria for “industry-desired” quality, the farmer will receive an additional $500 cash award in addition to the trip to Commodity Classic.
