Ontario 2011 Hybrid Corn Performance Trial Results Have Been Released

With the release of the Ontario 2011 hybrid corn performance trials, growers get a chance to review how last years varieties performed and what might be a good idea to plant in 2012.  As always there are many options and getting as much information as possible can help narrow down some of these tough decisions.  The fact that yields continue to ride is very exciting and is great for the profitability of corn growers in Ontario.
