The contest, conducted by the National Corn Growers Association, is in its 47th year and remains the organization’s most popular program for members. The contest has provided corn growers the opportunity to compete with their colleagues to grow the most corn per acre, helping feed and fuel the world. This has given participants not only the recognition they deserved, but the opportunity to learn from their peers.
