Anthony and Leda Schreiner, Chillicothe, of Schreiner Farms was recently honored among the nation’s highest-producing soybean farmers of the region in the 2019 Asgrow National

Yield Contest. Schreiner Farms won the award with a yield of 73.90 bushels per acre

with Asgrow AG39X7 Brand, according to a press release.

“Especially during a challenging year like 2019, it’s remarkable to achieve these yields,”

said Pete Uitenbroek, U.S. DEKALB, Asgrow and Deltapine Marketing Lead. “We enjoy

partnering with farmers who meet challenges head-on and push yield boundaries with high-

performing technology, hard work and innovative management practices.”

Among 53 farmers receiving awards, 13 achieved yields of more than 100 bushels per

acre in the 2019 contest. Winning farmers were recently recognized at the 2019 Commodity

Classic Feb. 27-29 in San Antonio, Texas, with an awards banquet and private concert featuring

Drake White.

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.
