2013 Seed selections

Posted by Russel Higgins - Corn

Many producers are currently selecting corn hybrids and soybean varieties for the 2013 growing season. Visit the Illinois Variety Testing website to see and download results at vt.cropsci.illinois.edu. Results can be downloaded either as PDF files for printing or as Excel spreadsheet files that allow sorting by yield or other data.

Dr. Emerson Nafziger shares several salient points in the decision making process, including multi-site vs. multi year results and how to interpret a coefficient of variation or CV on replicated studies.

Read Emersons article in its entirety to enhance your seed selection skills.
