Experiments with Corn - 1960

The corn silage production trial and a corn maturity rating trial were conducted at the Dickinson Experiment Station this year in addition to the corn included in the rotation, tillage and fertilizer trials which are summarized under the rotation and tillage sections of this report.

Data from the corn silage production trial are given in Tables 18 and 19. The corn maturity trial for 1960 is summarized in Table 20.
