corn performance tests, corn variety trials, corn, corn hybirds
Corn yield trials were conducted in 1952 by the Agronomy Department of the South Dakota Experiment Station to supply farmers with up to date information on popular hybrids which are planted extensively in the various agricultural areas of the state. The information obtained from the 1952 yield trials reflects the relative performing ability of the hybrids in a season having a deficiency of moisture during the later part. Temperatures for the season averaged close to normal, or slightly above, throughout the state. However, in most areas there was a deficiency of moisture the later part of the growing season. This deficiency of moisture, plus a warm late fall, resulted in well matured corn of low moisture content for most areas. The results are presented in the tables which follow.
