2021 Grow for the Green Soybean Yield Challenge

Each year the Grow for the Green Soybean Yield Challenge recognizes and rewards Arkansas' top soybean producers. The Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board, Arkansas Soybean Association and the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture unite to implement and promote this contest. The board sponsors the yield challenge, which provides information and tools to Arkansas soybean producers, such as a look at how top yields are reached. Your checkoff funds are used to reward producers for their hard work in helping to increase yield in Arkansas.

2020 Results

We want to commend all of the 76 soybean producers who entered the 2020 Grow for the Green Soybean Yield Contest and we are proud to announce that 2 of these producers reached and exceeded the 100 bushel/acre milestone in 2020. The Race for 100 Yield Contest began in 2007 and in 2013, the first three producers reached the goal. Ronnie Ragsdell from Lawrence county is the newest member of the 100 Bushel Club with a yield of 104.067 bu/a. Ragsdell grew Pioneer P48A60X and became the 23rd producer to join the 100 Bushel Club. Matt Miles from Desha county once again hit the 100-bushel mark with a yield of 116.858 bu/a growing Pioneer P47A64X. He became the winner of the first Champion of Champions category
