Gold Challenge registration underway

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. — Registration for the 2023 Golden Harvest Go for the Gold Challenge is open now through June 30.

The contest recognizes farmers who achieve top yields with eligible Golden Harvest soybeans during the 2023 growing season. The winning farmers will be awarded a trip to the 2024 Commodity Classic in Houston.

“We’re thrilled to host the second annual Go for the Gold Challenge,” said Ryan Dunsbergen, Golden Harvest soybean product manager.

“Last year, we had the honor of recognizing 14 soybean farmers who achieved top yields with Golden Harvest soybeans, and this year, we’re excited to see how farmers continue to push yields by pairing elite Golden Harvest soybean genetics with innovative agronomic management practices.”

Soybean farmers in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin who plant eligible Golden Harvest Gold Series soybean varieties in a 5-acre continuous block are encouraged to enter.

The top-yielding farmer from each participating state will be awarded a trip for two to the 2024 Commodity Classic in Texas, including airfare, hotel accommodations and event registrations. Winners will be announced in December after entrants have submitted their yield results.

“At Golden Harvest, innovation is driven by farmer success,” Dunsbergen said. “With the Go for the Gold Challenge, we have the opportunity to recognize farmers who push the envelope with Golden Harvest products and strengthen the relationship with these farmers to help them succeed year after year.”
