Results from the 2012 Ohio Corn Performance Test are now available on line at: http://www.ag.ohio-state.edu/~perf/ or http://agcrops.osu.edu/specialists/corn. Single and multi-year agronomic data is currently available for all sites and regions for 2012. Additional information regarding the growing season, evaluation procedures and traits will be available soon. Additional hybrids will be added as marketing information becomes available, as will the combined regional tables (which are especially helpful in assessing hybrid performance across locations). The print version will be available in the mid-December issue of Ohio’s Country Journal.
The 2012 Ohio Soybean Performance Trial Results as a printable (pdf) file of results in now also available at: http://agcrops.osu.edu/specialists/soybean/specialist-announcements/2012%20OCJ%20Report-SB%207%20pages.pdf and the searchable sortable web page should be available next week at http://hostedweb.cfaes.ohio-state.edu/perf/
The purpose of the Ohio Soybean Performance Trial is to evaluate soybean varieties for yield and other agronomic characteristics. This evaluation gives soybean producers comparative information for selecting the best varieties for their unique production systems. For each entry, yield, relative maturity, plant height, seed size, and protein and oil concentration is given. Varieties were evaluated at six locations in northern (Henry and Huron County), central (Mercer and Delaware County), and southern (Preble and Clinton County). Soybean varieties were entered by type (conventional/Liberty Link or Roundup Ready) and maturity (early or late) for the Roundup Ready varieties. Soybean yield ranged from 20 to 86 bushel per acre with an average of 63, 54, and 62 bushels per acre in the north, central, and south region, respectively.
