Go For 250
The Sorghum Checkoff is an elite supporter and sponsor of the National Sorghum Producers Yield Contest. This contest provides sorghum farmers with the opportunity to showcase their sorghum crop, while competing with farmers from across the nation. Not only does the yield contest allow for the opportunity to recognize some of the best growers in the U.S., it also helps farmers grow and learn from one another.
In 2014, the National Sorghum Producers set a yield goal of 250 bushels per acre or more to illustrate sorghum's yield potential. To aid in the quest for 250 bushels per acre, the Sorghum Checkoff has assisted in providing incentives via awards to growers who reach the new benchmark.
