Variety Trials Provide Valuable Information

variety trials 2012Selecting the crop varieties that will grow best in a particular area can make a huge impact on a producer's profitability. Each year, NDSU agricultural researchers conduct variety trials to help determine which varieties produce the best yields under a range of growing conditions. The researchers evaluate the varieties based on a number of characteristics. Using that data, producers should choose the varieties that, on average, perform the best at multiple locations near their farming operation during several years. (NDSU photo)
