Variable climatic conditions, innovations from biotechnology, acquisitions and mergers of seed companies, and rapid evolution of new hybrid lines means that unbiased crop performance information is increasingly important to Colorado corn producers.

High Yielding Corn Hybrids Found in CSU Trial at Burlington
Colorado State University researchers have identified a high yielding corn hybrid in their crop variety trial situated in a local farmer’s field. CSU screens hybrids for local adaptability and this year there were 13 hybrids from three different seed companies in a trial conducted in a cornfield near Stratton, Co. The highest yielding hybrid in the trial was a 113-day Ag Venture entry (RL8767HB) that went 262 bushels per acre. This yield is the average of four plots within the trial with this entry. These trials are conducted to provide information to local producers for making better corn hybrid decisions. In addition to Ag Venture, Producers Hybrids and NuTech tested lines for local adaptability. Producers are encouraged to contact their local seed reps to have their hybrids entered into the Colorado corn performance trials.



Thank you to all the companies that participated in the 2015 trials:
