Five Tips for Corn Farmers to Make Variety Selections
After a record drought, corn farmers are back to the drawing board. Selecting hybrids based on how they performed is a typical technique, but this season’s challenges could leave some farmers feeling uncertain about relying on their 2012 results. They need to look for advice beyond what typically is in their wheelhouse, including on-farm test plot results and independent data.
Jim Rouse, Iowa State University agronomist and executive director at the Iowa Crop Improvement Association, has five tips farmers should use when assessing yield trial data:
- Only multiple-location data should be used to make predictive selection decisions — including data that contains district or regional yield averages.
- Yield trials do not have to be performed on your farm, on your soil type or even under your crop rotation scheme to provide relevant data.
- Sort the data by yield. Make initial selections based on yield and appropriate maturity.
- Once you have a pool of hybrid candidates, sort among these to identify lines that have the desired mix of defensive traits.
- More information is better information. Use a variety of reliable sources of data.
