2018 Wisconsin Corn Hybrid Performance Trials- Grain, Silage, Specialty, Organic

Kent Kohn, Thierno Diallo, and Joe Lauer

Every year, the University of Wisconsin Extension-Madison and College of Agricultural and Life Sciences conduct a corn evaluation program. The purpose of this program is to provide unbiased performance comparisons of hybrid seed corn available in Wisconsin. These results are a ”Consumer Report” for commercial corn hybrids. The trials evaluate grain, silage, and systems including organic, transgenic and refugia systems. A one bushel per acre increase by Wisconsin corn farmers increases farm income $8 to $32 million dollars.
