Hector farmer Matt Melberg was recently honored among the nation’s highest-producing soybean farmers of his region in the 2020 Asgrow National Yield Contest. Melberg won the award with an impressive yield of 86 bushels per acre with Asgrow AG11X8 Brand.

“Pushing the performance boundaries comes natural to these farmers and we could not be more proud to partner with them in their quest for higher-yield potential,” said Clint Chaffer, Asgrow brand manager.

Among 28 farmers receiving awards, 14 achieved yields of more than 100 bushels per acre in the 2020 contest. The Asgrow National Yield Contest first debuted in 2012 and encourages producers to push soybean yield limits. The contest provides farmers the opportunity to innovate and learn more about the latest input technology and management practices for continuing advances in agricultural production.
