The Yield Hero Contest is back for a second year in Western Canada! Grow Pioneer® brand canola, corn or soybean seed products for a chance to win a trip for 2 to the final weekend of the 2018 Tim Hortons Brier in Regina, Saskatchewan! 

You've heard about it and would have seen it all over Twitter last fall. Didn't get a chance to enter last year? Don't stress - we are bringing the Yield Hero Contest back for a second season, with more grand prize winners and even more chances to win! With 21 grand prize opportunities, 14 secondary prizes, and 3 chances at professional sporting event ticket prizes in Western Canada, the Yield Hero Contest is a great opportunity to promote your high-yielding canola, corn and soybean seed products.

There are two ways to enter the 2017 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 #WestCdnAg and include your picture.
