2013 Hybrid Corn Performance Test

Chad Lee, Extension Agronomist, University of Kentucky

The 2013 Kentucky Hybrid Corn Performance Test is available online as a pdf file. A website with links to individual tests is here: http://www2.ca.uky.edu/cornvarietytest/2013/Results.html

The test includes hybrids in the early, medium and late maturities as well as a white corn test. Yields from five locations across Kentucky are reported this year. Yields were excellent. The average yield was 181.8 bu/A for the Early Test, 186.8 bu/A for the Medium Test, 203.5 bu/A for the Late Test and 156.3 for the White Test. 

Hybrids that performed well in the State Summary (all locations) have the best chance of performing well next year. If you are determined to evaluate a single location, then identify hybrids that did well at both a single location and in the State Summary.

For questions about the test, please contact Cam Kenimer.
