corn hybrid trials
Corn Hybrid Trials
  • About 140 hybrids
  • 7 locations
  • Compare hybrid relative yield performance
  • Reduce as many other variables as possible.
  • Identify hybrids for your conditions.
slide14

LSD = 7.4 bu/acre

Early Average Yield = 170.6 bu/acre

13 Hybrids within 7.4 bu/acre of top yield

57 hybrids total in the Early Test.

2007 Kentucky Corn Hybrid Performance Test, p. 7

LSD = 8.0 bu/acre

Medium Average Yield = 177.3 bu/acre

13 Hybrids within 8.0 bu/acre

76 hybrids total in Medium Test

Based on Yields from 2006 Trials and expected performance in 2007.

(The 2006 Soybean Performance Trial was predicting yields for 2007)

2007 soybean performance trials
2007 Soybean Performance Trials
  • About 200 commercial varieties tested
  • 5 locations (2 were dropped due to drought)

  • The first step in biofuels
  • Improvements in efficiency needed
  • Rotational implications
why corn
Why Corn?
  • We can grow it.
  • We can ship it.
  • We can make ethanol from it.
  • U.S. Stats, 2007
  • 84 million acres
  • 154.7 bushels/acre
  • 13.3 billion bushels
  • 495 billion lbs of starch

** Not sustainable. Need ~4 ton crop residue (root + shoot) annually to maintain current SOM levels. Soybean residue (root + shoot) = 2 ton/year, so need 4 ton + 2 ton from corn to cover soybean year in 2 yr rotation.

production practices as we know them
Production Practices (as we know them)
  • Soybean, Pioneer 94M80
  • Sprinkler-Irrigated every day
  • Fungicide applied (twice?)
  • Foliar feeding?
  • Extremely high populations
  • Walked field every day
