By Jim Rouse



Final results of Iowa’s Official Variety Trials are now available to the public at www.croptesting.iastate.edu. Iowa Crop Performance Tests manages more than 20,000 plots at 30 locations across the state of Iowa, with more than 35 companies participating in the tests.

Online users can view all entrants, the hybrids or varieties entered and the districts and tests in which the entries were placed. Users can also filter the information by district, GMO traits or maturity.  All data tables in the reports are also available to download as Microsoft Excel files on the website.

The Iowa Crop Performance Tests are the top-ranked provider of unbiased performance data among all Midwestern, self-supported public testing programs for both corn and soybeans. The testing program continues to provide growers information they need to make informed variety selection decisions. Quick access to harvest data is commonly cited as the most appreciated feature of the yield tests. Data reports also include two-year averages when applicable.

Published results can be requested from Iowa State University Extension and Outreach county offices, the Iowa Crop Improvement Association, 515-294-6921, and the Extension Store, 515-294-5247.

The Iowa Crop Improvement Association conducts the Iowa Crop Performance Tests in cooperation with the Iowa State University Department of Agronomy. The program offers unbiased, third party, on-farm information to Iowa growers.
