Corn 2013: Missouri Crop Performance
Metadata[+] Show full item record
The MU Variety Testing Program has provided Missouri farmers with unbiased variety comparisons for more than 75 years, first with corn, then soybean and wheat. Current staff members have a total of over 100 years of experience with testing crop yield performance. Our plots are placed where you farm. They have the soils and weather conditions your fields have. The MU Variety Testing Program is on-farm research in the truest sense of the word. Fourteen of our locations are on farmer fields in your communities. The other four locations are MU farms. These CAFNR owned and operated research centers sample the north, central and southeast regions of Missouri and combined with the private farm locations provide you with the diversity of environments you need to select the best hybrids for your farm.
