FN5 Daily: Corn performance trials complete despite COVID challenges
November 25, 2020
Michigan State University is releasing its 2020 Corn and Soybean Performance Trials. Conducted annually, trials are designed to offer farmers, extension personnel and seed companies with an unbiased look at the performance of hybrids submitted to MSU by private seed companies. The emergence of COVID-19 this past spring left researchers wondering if they would even be able to conduct the trials this year.
The 2020 Soybean Variety Trials will be available in the November 30th edition of the Michigan Farm News, with the Corn Variety Trials will follow in the December 15th edition. Data will also be available online at MSU’s variety trials website.
