Minnetonka, Minn., USA, Oct. 19, 2017 – Golden Harvest is rewarding farmers for their hard work with the launch of their 2017 #AcetheAcre photo #contest. Farmers are encouraged to share harvest photos on Twitter and Instagram, or to the Golden Harvest Facebook page using the hashtags #AcetheAcre and #contest now through Nov. 26. Participants will have the opportunity to win weekly prizes and the grand prize – a $500 donation to a cause of their choice and a Polaris Sportsman 570 ATV.

“At Golden Harvest, we want to celebrate the countless hours farmers put in leading up to harvest,” said Colin Steen, head, Golden Harvest West. “So many factors go into a successful season, including genetics, seed selection, proper placement, strong agronomics and season-long management. This photo contest allows farmers to showcase the results they are getting out of every acre after a season of hard work.”

Through their photos, farmers are encouraged to share performance results, top-performing Golden Harvest® hybrids and varieties, and the actions they took throughout the season that lead to their success.

“We are hearing great yield results coming in for Golden Harvest hybrids and varieties,” said Chad Stone, head, Golden Harvest East. “We are excited to see the results from fields across the Corn Belt and reward our farmers for trusting in us to help them have strong performance.”
