Now, the series is being presented in an exciting new format that features reports in a short format with insight and provides a real picture of American farm life through visuals.
  • The National Corn Yield Contest officially opened May 1, 2020, and the National Corn Growers Association is encouraging potential entrants to register early and save big on entry fees.
