2013 Harrold Phillips Soybean Yield Contest
The Alabama Soybean Producers voted to split $1500 between the winners of this year's Harrold Phillips Soybean Yield Contest. The Alabama Soybean Yield Contest will have a dryland and an irrigated category. You can enter both categories.
It is simple to enter. Any Alabama soybean producer who grows 10 acres or more is eligible to enter.
The area for the contest will consist of the whole field or whole farm. Applicants will be required to verify acreage in the selected field or farm by attaching a copy of FSA records showing official acreage. Contestants will include weight tickets and grade sheets on soybeans harvested from designated field or farm will be asked to provide a summary of their production practices and cost. Contestants will certify that the information provided is accurate.
A committee of Association directors will verify yields and determine winners. This committee shall have the authority to arbitrate any point of contention and their decision will be final.
In case of a tie the grower with the lowest cost of production will win. The winners will be announced at the Association meeting.
Mail your completed information, acreage verification, and weight tickets no later than December 1 to:
