Monsanto’s 2015 Asgrow soybeans yield contest saw an increase in soybean yield with 51 farmers announced as winners, 13 of whom had yields of over 100 bushels per acre. 

The top yield came from Jarrettsville, Maryland farmer John Rigdon, who had a yield of 134.5 bushels/acre with Asgrow’s AG3832 Brand. The other 50 farmers represented 19 different states.

“High yields depend on paying attention to every little detail, from the seed you plant to setting your combine at harvest,” Rigdon said. “I always consider Asgrow products to be at the forefront of soybean genetics with their high yield potential and disease resistance.”

Three other farmers topping 100 bushels per acre were Jed and James Schneckloth of Eldridge, Iowa, with 121.9 bushels per acre with AG2632 Brand; Aaron Niebrugge of Sigel, Illinois, with 112 bushels per acre with AG4135 Brand; and Craig Small of Monroe City, Indiana, with 108.1 bushels per acre with AG3832 Brand.

“Congratulations to these farmers for achieving top yields with Asgrow seed and being among the nation’s top soybean-producing farmers,” Asgrow Brand Manager Dipal Chaudhari said. “As demonstrated this past season, Asgrow soybean products offer consistent, proven performance with strong emergence, excellent plant health and high yield potential, even during challenging growing conditions.”
