Montana Farmer Recognized in National Corn Growing Contest


SAN ANTONIO, TX (March 3, 2017) – Improved seed varieties, advanced production techniques and innovative growing practices helped corn growers achieve ever-higher yields in the National Corn Growers Association 2016 National Corn Yield Contest. Additionally, a record five national entries surpassed the 400-plus bushel per acre mark.


The National Corn Yield Contest is now in its 52nd year and remains NCGA’s most popular program for members. Participation in the contest remained strong in 2016, with 7,972 entries received.


Tom Robertus, a farmer from Laurel, MT was one of the state winners from Montana and was recognized at Commodity Classic by DuPont Pioneer and the NCGA. 


In San Antonio, the Northern Ag Network's Russell Nemetz talked with him about the award and how much corn he was able to raise on one acre.
