2016 Hertford County Corn Trial

Growers should utilize multi-location and multi-year performance data to develop a list of the best-suited varieties for their farm. Then, once several varieties are selected, performance of those varieties in the closest regional test or from on-farm testing should be considered. After identifying a group of varieties with high grain-yield potential and stable performance across sites and years, the variety selection process should continue with consideration given to secondary characteristics such as test weight, disease resistance, lodging, height, maturity, and end-use quality.
