Mississippi Variety Testing

The Mississippi State University - Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station Variety Testing Program evaluates the performance of commercially available varieties of corn, soybeans, wheat, sorghum and oats throughout the state of Mississippi.

The annual variety trials examine yield as well as other data such as maturity date, plant height, lodging, reaction to disease and herbicides, and plant characteristics, depending on the crop. The variety trials are professionally managed and conducted by a team of experts in a research oriented environment to minimize variability. These trials provide unbiased, comprehensive information that assists farmers in making pivotal decisions about variety/hybrid selection and management.

Variety testing websites of universities involved in variety trials in Southern Region are also available.
