2023 TAPS winners announced

The Testing Ag Performance Solutions awards banquet was held, Jan. 13 and included a celebration of the competition’s winners and participants.

The University of Nebraska’s Testing Ag Performance Solutions  program, Lincoln, Nebraska, concluded its seventh year with an awards banquet on Jan. 13. 

The event recognized participants of the farm management competitions involving popcorn, sorghum, subsurface drip irrigated corn and sprinkler irrigated corn. 

This year’s competitions faced challenges due to hail, affecting outcomes. Awards were presented for greatest grain yield, highest input use efficiency, and most profitable in each category. 

In the sorghum competition, Brandon Rimpley and Ron Robison won all three top honors. The irrigated popcorn competition winners included Roger Lansman for Greatest Yield, Nate Freitag for highest input use efficiency, and AK Acres for most profitable. The SDI corn and sprinkler irrigated corn competitions recognized Lorn Dizmang, the Rattlesnake Boys, and Kenny Reinke among others for their achievements. 

Tracy Zink received the Outstanding TAPS Advocate award for her support and promotion of the program. 

Planning for the 2024 competitions is underway. Read more details and the 2023 competition report here.
