The NCGA Corn Yield contest is an annual U.S. national competition among corn growers with the goal of capitalizing on the high genetic yield potential of today’s corn hybrids. Growers compete in six corn production classes, including non-irrigated (A and AA), no-till/strip-till non-irrigated (A and AA), irrigated and no-till/strip-till irrigated classes. The class A Non-Irrigated Class is open to corn producers in the continental United States, except for Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio or Wisconsin. The AA Non-Irrigated Class is for corn producers entering a hybrid located in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio or Wisconsin.
