Missouri crop performance, 2011 : corn
"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. The tests are conducted under the most nearly uniform conditions possible. Small plots are used to reduce the chance of soil and climatic variations occurring between one hybrid plot and another. Results obtained should aid the individual grower in judging the relative merits of many of the commercial corn hybrids currently available in Missouri."--Page 3.
