Organic Variety Trials

In 2010 Penn State conducted an organic short-season corn variety trial at two locations in PA. The trial looked at yields among the different sites and compared the varieties in terms of yield, percent moisture at time of harvest, and dry down rate over the season. In 2011 researches will conduct variety trials on both organic corn and soybean varieties.
