AGRI-PRIZE™ Canola 100™ FAQs

What is the Canola 100 Agri-Prize?

It is a skills based competition for farmers that will run for 3 crop years beginning in 2016.

First farmer to verify growing 100 bushels or more per acre on 50 contiguous acres of spring sown, non-irrigated canola wins the use of a fleet of John Deere equipment (100 hrs each of a 4WD tractor, air seeder, high clearance sprayer, swather and combine - the prize is worth close to $200,000).

There will be a winner. If no one crosses the 100 bu/ac mark then the highest recorded yield by Dec 31, 2018 will walk away with the prize.

Agri-Prize is operated by Agri-Trend Inc. The Co-Sponsors of the Canola 100 Agri-Prize are John Deere and Glacier FarmMedia.

Who can participate?

Any farmer in BC, AB, SK, MB and ON.

You can enter up to 2 fields per farm per year. You need to register by April 30th and lock in your field(s) by May 15th.

(Sorry US farmers, we tried to get this approved for you as well but ran into contest issues in some states)

What are some of the key points?

The competition is wide open…any genetics, technology or agronomic practices. First across the line wins.

The Participants will be all getting a limited license to The Agri-Data Solution which will be used as the official data platform for the competition. You will be expected to fill in details of how you grew the crop, weather info, harvest dates, etc.

John Deere is asking all participants to register for a account. You don't have to use it, but JD wants you to see some of the cool stuff they can offer as part of their program.

As part of the contest Agri-Trend, John Deere and Glacier FarmMedia want to create a community. There will be communication to you throughout the year and we are planning a special get togethers for Canola 100 farmers at the Ag in Motion Outdoor Farm Show in July and at the Farm Forum Event in December.

The objective is to inspire farmers towards greater innovation. We want this contest to be fun and for all involved to learn a tonne!

Is there a cost?

Yes, there is a $100 fee per field per year. This is an entry fee. These funds will be used to administer the competition and to build a community among the participants. We want to have some special communication and even some special events for the Canola 100 farm competitors.

If you think you have a shot a taking the prize, there is a $1,000 Verification Fee to help offset the costs of an official 3rd Party Verifier. It is very important to maintain the integrity of the competition and in order to do this we have decided to work with AgCall Inc as our official verification firm.
