Local data in corn trials

CORN and forage trial sites at Boort and Yarrawalla will be opened in coming weeks for growers to see the latest Pioneer hybrids on display.

David Smyth, of Pioneer, said the trial sites would contribute to vital seed technology research in key environments.

He said the trials were evaluating growth and yield of different hybrids.

“The strong local knowledge and data to be gained from these local trials will be very important,” he said. David said corn was gaining popularity in northern areas of the Loddon’s irrigation districts as local knowledge continued to grow.

“The information from these local trials certainly helps with hybrid decisions for growers and in the case of Pioneers STRIKE trials, to make assessments on the advancement of future products,” he said.
