Registration for the 2024 Great Lakes Yield Enhancement Network (YEN) is now open and closes February 2nd, 2024 (or until maximum capacity is reached). The Great Lakes YEN works to help farmers improve crop returns through a greater understanding of crop performance. The Great Lakes YEN is currently focused on winter wheat and covers the geographic area of the Province of Ontario, Canada, and the Great Lakes region of the USA.

Established in 2021, the Great Lakes Yield Enhancement Network (YEN) was created in partnership with Grain Farmers of Ontario, Michigan State University, Michigan Wheat Program, the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, and the University of Guelph. For more information, visit or follow us on social media @GreatLakesYEN.
