Entries Wanted For Corn Yield Competition

The Manitoba Crop Alliance (MCA) is seeking participants for the 2020 Corn Yield Competition.
 
The annual competition dates back to 1971.
 
"Everything is still going ahead as normal since [Manitoba] Corn Growers amalgamated with Manitoba Crop Alliance," said Agronomy Extension Specialist Morgan Cott. "We've omitted the $25 entry fee this year so that's a little bit simplier and just the same as always I take two rows side by side, 50 feet in length, and hand pick the corn."
 
The top prize this year is $1,000.
 
Winners will be announced at the MCA virtual AGM to be held in February 2021.
