Tests are partially funded by entry fees paid by commercial firms. Each firm selected entries for testing and furnished seed for the trials. The Agricultural Experiment Station selected open-pedigree hybrids as a standard of comparison. A closed-pedigree corn hybrid was also included in the forage sorghum trials as a comparative standard and was sponsored by the Colorado State Agricultural Experiment Station.
