In 2018, 192 corn hybrids representing 24 commercial brands were evaluated in the Ohio Corn Performance Test (OCPT). Four tests were established in the Southwestern/West Central/Central (SW/WC/C) region and three tests were established in the Northwestern (NW) and North Central/Northeastern (NC/NE) regions (for a total of ten test sites statewide). Hybrid entries in the regional tests were planted in either an early or a full season maturity trial. These test sites provided a range of growing conditions and production environments.
Digital agriculture, combining multiple data sources with advanced crop and environmental analyses to provide support for on-farm decision making, continues to change and advance our industry. Data and digital technologies can provide insights and opportunities to improve crop management by responding to each season’s unique conditions.
