A late-winter cold spell has hit parts the Upper Midwest, but spring planting is coming nonetheless. One sign of that:
The National Wheat Foundation has announced plans for the second annual National Wheat Yield Contest. The kick-off 2016 contest was popular with wheat growers nationwide, according to the National Association of Wheat Growers.
The contest allows farmers to compete against their peers and to "learn from each other innovative techniques to improve wheat productivity on their farms," NAWG says.
