2021 Corn Variety Trial Results

Results from the 2021 Northeast Ag Expo corn variety trials are attached to this newsletter. These trials were located in Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Gates, Pasquotank, and Perquimans Counties. Varieties are listed in descending order according to average yield across locations, i.e. 1 (highest yielding) to 22 (lowest yielding). Within locations the varieties are ranked in descending order according to yield from highest (1) to the lowest yielding variety (22). The top three yielding varieties within locations and across locations have their ranking marked as following: 1 (blue), 2 (red), 3 (yellow).

Production information for each location can be found on the back of the results page. Thank you to each of the local farms and agribusinesses for their contributions to these trials. Without their support, we would not be able to provide this locally generated information to the region’s farmers. I would like to especially thank Black Gold Farms for providing the land and other resources necessary for the Camden County location.

In addition, data from the 2021 North Carolina Official Variety Testing (OVT) corn trials have recently been added to the NC OVT Variety Selection Tool. OVT data will be easiest to sort through using a desktop computer. If you have specific variety questions or need assistance navigating the tool, I will be happy to assist.

Soil Sampling: Peak Season Date

I have been informed that soil samples must be at the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Soil Testing Lab by November 30 at 5 p.m. to avoid the peak season fee of $4 per soil sample. We have soil sample boxes and shippers available at the Extension Office. To avoid peak season fees and shipping costs bring us your soil samples by November 23 at 5 p.m.

For more information regarding any of your farming needs, please feel free to contact me at the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Camden County office at 252-331-7630.
