The Ohio Soybean Association (OSA) announced the winners of the 2010 Ohio Soybean Yield and Quality Contest during the Ohio Grain Farmers Symposium in Lima. This was the first year for the statewide contest and entries surpassed expectations with more than 137 applicants.
There were six yield categories available and the quality category of the contest was based on highest percentages of oil and protein.
“We were very pleased by the response and excitement we received from Ohio farmers about the contest this year,” said Jeff Wuebker, president of OSA and Darke County soybean farmer. “We had some great yields and quality results from the entries and we hope to have even more entries next year.”
This year’s Overall State Yield Champion was Don Jackson from Preble County. Jackson recorded a yield of 81.699 with Seed Consultants 9360 variety.
