Corn Hybrid Evaluations in Bonita, 19931994 was a poorer than average corn year, the summer was hot and dry and it was difficult to keep enough water under the crop. Pioneer 3162, the best yielding corn hybrid over a several year period, was the leading variety in this trial with a yield just under 12,000 pounds per acre. Two new hybrids from Pioneer and a hybrid from the HyPerformer Seed Company were just lower than Pioneer 3162.
Double-crop Grain Sorghum Variety Trial in Graham County, 1994Nine grain sorghum hybrids were compared in a replicated trial planted as a second crop after a small grain crop had already been harvested. Because of reduced season as a double-crop all the cultivars were mid- season or shorter. Cargill 727 was the highest yielding hybrid with a yield over 5100 pounds per acre.
Grain Sorghum Variety Trial, Gila Bend, AZ, 1994Eight grain sorghum varieties were grown on two farms in the Gila Bend area of Arizona. Three additional varieties were only grown as entries on one farm or the other. No comparison of farm management techniques is attempted. Dekalb 51 was the highest yielding variety (5582 lb/Ac). Short, mid and full season varieties were included in the trial. The Short season varieties offer some advantages for farm management and rotation programs in the area.
