Wheat Yield contest winners share tips for success

From Successful Farming

Since reaching 80 million acres of wheat in 1980, U.S. farmers are growing less of the crop: just 50 million acres of all classes planted for the 2023–24 crop year.

Still, wheat is important on farms in nearly every state. It is a key component of a well-balanced crop rotation, and adds diversified income to farmers who fine-tune crop management skills and push yields.

Participants in the 2023 National Wheat Yield Contest used several strategies to push yields, many of which they share here.
