2011 MSU Corn Hybrid Demonstration Program Results

This program is intended to provide corn growers, crop consultants and other ag professionals additional information to help assess future hybrid performance and adaptability in your fields.  Hybrids selected for inclusion in this program must demonstrate superior grain yield performance in MSU Corn for Grain Hybrid Trials based upon either dryland or irrigated culture. This performance is evaluated annually and those top-yielding hybrids are published as “MSU Corn Hybrid Suggestions.”  A respective seed company may make an alternate hybrid choice, if conditions warrant.  These two standardized sets of superior-yielding hybrids are respectively grown at numerous field locations according to the crop culture.  MSU Extension Service Area Agronomic Crop Agents coordinate locations with grower cooperators in their region, and supervise plots during the season.

The objective of the Corn Hybrid Demonstration Program is to provide opportunity for clientele to evaluate premier hybrids during the entire season and substantially supplement the information gathered in the university hybrid trials.  This program increases hybrid exposure and is well suited to evaluate various plant characteristics and environmental responses that may be impractical to accomplish in university hybrid trials.
