Missouri 2011 Corn Performance Tests
Metadata[+] Show full item record
This report is published by the MU Variety Testing Program, Division of Plant Sciences, University of Missouri. The work was supported by fees provided by companies submitting hybrids for evaluation. The University of Missouri's hybrid performance testing program began in the mid-1930s, with results first published in 1937. The number of entries in the program has grown from fewer than 50 in the early years to more than 250 today. The large number of commercial hybrids available makes selection of a superior hybrid difficult. To select intelligently, producers need a reliable, unbiased, up-to-date source of information that will permit valid comparisons among available hybrids. The objective of the MU Variety Testing Program is to provide this information.
