I recently had the opportunity to help out with the corn variety trials in Daviess County. Paul Winkler, Adult Vocational Agriculture Instructor in Daviess County, coordinated the trials for the week. We were able to put out seven variety trials with seven different producers over the five day period. I came away impressed with both the research program in the county and the number of great producers that Paul and the Extension Service have established relationships with through the years. One producer that is doing a corn hybrid trial will also be participating in SoyMVP for the 2010 season.
Paul, Clint Hardy, and the cooperators in Daviess County do an excellent job with this program. Results from their 2009 corn, soybean, and wheat trials can be found below:
