University of Wisconsin Crop Variety and Hybrid Trial Results

Results from the 2011 crop variety trials conducted by the University of Wisconsin can be found at the websites below. These trials are a "consumer report" of commercial varieties and hybrids offered for sale to farmers in Wisconsin. These results are derived from replicated plots grown around Wisconsin at university research stations and farmer fields.

These results offer the best predictor for next year's potential performance of crop varieties.

Every year, the University of WisconsinExtension-Madison and College of Agricultural and Life Sciences conduct a cornevaluation program, in cooperation with the Wisconsin Crop ImprovementAssociation. The purpose of this program is to provide unbiased performancecomparisons of hybrid seed corn available in Wisconsin. These trials evaluatecorn hybrids for both grain and silage production performance.

In 2011, grain and silage performance trials wereplanted at thirteen locations in four production zones. Both seed companies anduniversity researchers submitted hybrids. The results are posted at
