The deadline for spring wheat growers to enter the 2022 National Wheat Yield Contest is Monday, Aug. 1.

New for 2022 in the contest held by the National Wheat Foundation is a recognition of industry-desired quality for wheat. The 24 national categories remain the same as previous years. Grain from the 24 winners will be analyzed for quality and if the targets are all met, the winner will receive an additional $500.

The prize for the 24 winners is a trip to the Commodity Classic in Orlando, Florida, in March 2023 and recognition at a winner’s reception.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
