2017 Hybrid Corn Performance Trials

Because the OCC trials were more variable than usual this year, it is important to note the LSD printed at the bottom of each trial. The LSD shows how much two hybrids must differ to be considered different. For example, if the LSD of a trial is 10, hybrids with yield indexes of 110 and 99 are different while hybrids with indexes of 110 and 101 are not.
