2018 YIELD HERO CONTEST

The Yield Hero Contest is back in Western Canada and bigger than ever! Grow Pioneer® brand canola, corn or soybean seed products for a chance to win a trip for 2 to the 2019 Curling Continental Cup among the bright lights of LAS VEGAS! 

Yield Heroes are taking to Twitter to up their chances to win, and now, there are even more possibilities starting this spring! We are bringing the Yield Hero Contest back this year and it's even bigger than before, with more prize winners and even more opportunities to get involved! This year, we have increased the grand prize total to 21 and 36 secondary prizes! The Yield Hero Contest is a great opportunity for bragging rights of your high-yielding canola, corn and soybean products and a fun way to connect with other Pioneer brand seed growers. 

There are two ways to enter the 2018 Yield Hero Contest:

1. Contact your local Pioneer Hi-Bred sales representative and have him or her submit your weigh to DuPont Pioneer through the DuPont Pioneer TRIALS System. 2. Complete the weigh with your PHI sales representative, let him or her take a picture of you with your yield results on our yield board, then tweet your results to @PioneerWCanada with the hashtags #YieldHero or #YieldHero18 and #WestCdnAg and include your picture.
