The LibertyLink Real Yield Sweepstakes kicks off in July, and offers growers the chance to win up to 500 acres of the LibertyLink system for either cotton or soybeans. We will also be awarding 200 acres of the LibertyLink system for cotton and soybeans monthly. Two winners will be drawn each month through December. Once again, state FFA will have the chance to compete for dollars to support their organizations.
Growers can participate in the Sweepstakes by attending one of the Bayer Showcase Plot Tours, or by visiting www.RealYieldSweepstakes.com and entering their information. Six cotton growers and six soy growers will win 200 acres of LibertyLink, and one lucky winner will win 500 acres of LibertyLink for the crop of their choice.
In addition to the soybean and cotton prizes that growers can enter to win, a donation will be made to local FFA. For each entry, Bayer will contribute to that grower’s state FFA, up to $50,000 nationally. The Sweepstakes is open through December 31, 2016, and winners will be announced in March at Commodity Classic in San Antonio, TX.
