The Iowa Crop Improvement Association (ICIA) have completed this year’s Iowa Crop Performance Tests (ICPT) and are now out with their full 2020 reports for both corn and soybeans.
ICPT provide direct, unbiased comparisons among a large number of corn hybrids and soybean varieties, in many different environments. Data is posted online within 48 hours of harvest, giving you an early look at test results with full reports published after harvest is completed.
The ICIA, in conjunction with the department of agronomy at Iowa State University , conducts the tests on ISU research farms and cooperating private farms across the state.
The Iowa Crop Performance Tests are gearing up for their 100th year of gauging the yields of hundreds of seed varieties, an annual effort that helps farmers decide what seeds to plant the following year.
