Meet the 2016 Yield Heroes

Congratulations to Bauman Agency’s 2016 Yield Heroes! Our first annual Yield Hero Contest was announced in September on our website and through a mailing that was sent to all of our Pioneer seed customers. Our growers were eligible to enter a yield result for each Pioneer variety planted. These 2016 Yield Heroes were honored at our first annual yield hero dinner where they were awarded their 2016 Yield Hero jackets.

Congratulations to…
