NC Wheat Yield Contest Extended

From: Randy Weisz – Small Grains Specialist

Wheat harvest across the state is extremely late this year due to the continued wet weather. As of today (July 2nd) only 4 entries to the wheat yield contest have been received. Consequently, I'm going to extend the deadline for entries an extra 10 days to July 17th.

The 2013 entry form and rules (found at: ) state that the deadline for entry is July 7th. Please disregard that and instead use July 17th as the deadline. is dedicated to serving the agricultural industry in the Carolinas and Virginia with the latest ag news, exclusive regional weather station readings, and key crop market information.
