The 2018 Kansas Performance Tests with Corn Hybrids report is now online and in print form. In this report, you will find a review of the 2018 corn crop, with a detailed discussion summarizing the statewide growing conditions and impacts from diseases and insects. More importantly, the results of the 2018 corn hybrid performance tests are also shown. Corn performance tests are conducted each year by the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station. The results from these tests provide producers, extension agents, and industry professionals with unbiased agronomic information on many of the corn hybrids marketed in Kansas.
Producers and crop consultants can use this resource to help select corn hybrids for their operation by checking for varieties that show a consistently good performance in their region.
