Yield Contest, 2001
Tuesday, August 28, 2001
The 2001 wheat yield contest results are now official and here they are!
We had hard growing conditions in the Fall of 2000 especially in the Piedmont. Then a killing frost in the late Spring that devastated much of the NC harvest. As a result we only had 1 entry from the Piedmont, a handful of entries of the rest of the state, and no 100 bushel yields at all. But, even with these circumstances, there were some wheat yields to be proud of.
