2014 Monsanto Fantasy Farming Yield Challenge

The Fantasy Farming plots have been harvested and sold on the cash market ($2.77/bu). Congratulations to Geneseo for winning the highest yield portion of the competition, and also to ROWVA for winning the profitability portion of the contest. Each school will receive an iPad and $1000 for their FFA chapter. Thank you to everyone who participated, and we hope you all take part again next year! Over the next several days, I will analyze the numbers and put together my thoughts/opinions on the results so you can share some learnings with your students.

Thanks again, and I will be contacting the winning schools soon to arrange the check presentations!
