WASHINGTON — AEI Premium, the online community for agricultural decision makers, has launched a new online contest called the Yield Forecast Challenge.
The questions will span the USDA World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) estimate of corn and soybean yields from May through November 2022. The first four questions are live now.
To win, you earn points after each question is resolved based on how well your forecast stacked up and how long you participated. The overall winner will receive the grand prize at the end of the contest: $1,600. Additional prizes will be awarded throughout the contest.
“We’re excited to provide a new way for farmers, agribusiness leaders, farm policy wonks, and students to engage with AEI.ag,” said AEI Premium co-founder David Widmar. “This contest supports our broader mission to help agriculture decision makers navigate today’s uncertainty and information overload. The Yield Forecast Challenge will empower you to be your own guru.”
