Now that the 2013 Kansas wheat crop is breaking dormancy, achieving top yields is on the minds of wheat farmers. Rain and snow showers falling on many of the state's wheat farms the last few weeks have given many farmers hope for a bountiful crop. With Mother Nature's help, your best management practices could be just the ticket to earn you a quick $1,000 in cash, if you enter the Kansas Wheat Yield Contest.
Now in its fourth year, the contest includes three regions: Region 1 (Western Kansas), Region 2 (Central Kansas) and Region 3 (Eastern Kansas). Producers achieving the top yield in each region receive a $1,000 cash prize and plaque from Kansas Wheat and corporate co-sponsor, BASF.
