Corn

Selection of varieties that best fit a farmer’s production goals and challenges is an essential part of profitable grain crop production. We provide the reliable, unbiased, up-to-date information that makes that selection possible.

9466225437_1d8bb482f6_bThe Fisher Delta Research Center is part of the MU Variety Testing Program that each year tests more than 600 corn, grain sorghum, and soybean varieties at 32 locations throughout Missouri. These 32 locations are distributed among four regions: North, Central, Southwest, and Southeast. Companies enter their varieties into tests at one or more of these regions, but their entries must be placed at all locations within a region.

The headquarters for the MU Variety Testing Program is the Bradford Research and Extension Center located in the heart of Missouri six miles east of Columbia. We also have personnel located near Portageville, MO and the Hundley-Whaley Research Center near Albany. The majority of our test locations are farmer fields and we appreciate the cooperation and dedication of our cooperators.
