Scroll through this page to see the 2020 winners who’ll join the Yield Chasers Wall of Fame. Check out the DEKALB® and Asgrow® top products for the coming year. Listen to Jamie and Jessica share key insights on how we’ve gotten to 321 Bu/A corn and 113 Bu/A soybeans, including how you can move the mark on your own farm. To wrap up, don’t miss Kevin Kalb’s special message on the importance of remembering what truly matters. Before you go, be sure to register for your chance to win exclusive Yield Chaser prizes. Good luck in 2021.
