There is no nationally televised corn championship. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t corn champions. As humble as most farmers are, all it takes is one chance at the highest yield title to bring out the relentlessness of the best. It’s the early risers, the shortcut deniers, the detail freaks and the generally obsessive who find themselves on the short list of yield masters.
So what is it that separates the best of the best? We think top-level genetics is a good place to start. Industry-leading agronomy with personalized service every step of the way doesn’t hurt either. That’s why AgriGold farmers continuously thrive in the annual NCGA National Corn Yield Contest.

Performance may vary from location to location and from year to year, as local growing, soil and weather conditions may vary. Growers should evaluate data from multiple locations and years whenever possible and should consider the impacts of these conditions on the grower’s fields.
