Yield contest winners recognized at Missouri Soybean Association meeting

A Missouri farmer says he improves his production through competing in the Missouri Soybean Yield Contest. Brian Steinhoff, who farms in St. Charles County near St. Louis, tells Brownfield he learns through his own practices and the practices of other contestants.

“I think it’s a place to benchmark yourself against other growers in the state of Missouri and the United States,” Steinhoff told Brownfield Ag News. “I think that it helps us learn about other areas of our farm that we can improve.”

Steinhoff’s yield of 92.53 bushels to the acre topped the non-irrigated category in the contest. Jerry Cox of Cape Girardeau topped the irrigated category at 96.93 bushels per acre.

The two were recognized at the Missouri Soybean Association Annual Meeting Monday night in Jefferson City.
