The DuPont Pioneer brand helped sorghum producers to win 16 of 21 national titles at the 2015 National Sorghum Producers (NSP) Yield Contest by planting the top yields of all entries. 

Pioneer also won 113 of 168 state titles.

“The 2015 NSP Yield Contest results demonstrate that our high-yielding products, coupled with implementation of best management practices, are providing top yield results for sorghum growers across the United States,” Doug Pilkington, DuPont Pioneer's senior marketing manager for the Western business unit, said. “We continue to expand our investment in sorghum research to improve our products and the defensive traits that protect top yields. Our team in the field is ready to help growers find the right Pioneer brand sorghum product and management practices for their production acres in 2016.”

Awards were also given to the top three entries in each of the seven sorghum production classes: conventional-till irrigated, conventional-till non-irrigated, mulch-till non-irrigated, no-till non-irrigated, reduced-till irrigated, double-crop non-irrigated and double-crop irrigated.

A list of winners can be found on Pioneer’s website.
