This pamphlet reports the performance of corn hybrids harvested in 1962. Also included are two year variety averages of yield and moisture content where available. The trials have been conducted under the supervision of the Crop Performance Testing Activity of Statewide Services, Agricultural Experiment Station for the 1961 and 1962 crop seasons. The purpose of the trials is to supply farmers, ranchers, and others in agri-business, information on the relative performance ability of the various hybrids entered when grown under similar conditions of environment. The crop adaptation areas in which the tests were located are based upon differences in soil type, elevation, temperature, rainfall and other related conditions. Data reported are the acre grain yield, moisture percentage of the ear corn, performance score and stalk lodging where valid data were obtainable, When evaluating and selecting hybrids for use in this state one should refer to the trials conducted nearest the area in which the hybrid is to be planted.
