2022 Corn Variety Trial Results

Results from the 2022 Northeast Ag Expo corn variety trials are attached to this newsletter. These trials were conducted 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 21 (lowest yielding). Within locations the varieties are ranked in descending order according to yield from highest (1) to the lowest yielding variety (21). The top three yielding varieties within location and across locations have their ranking marked as following: 1 (blue), 2 (yellow), 3 (red). Production information for each location can be found on the back of the results page. Thank you to each of the local farm cooperators 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 John E. Ferebee Farming, Inc. for providing the land and other resources necessary for the Camden County location.

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.

Nickels For Know-How Referendum

The Camden County Nickels for Know-How Referendum will be held on Thursday, November 17, 2022. A polling place has been established in the county. The polling location will be at the N.C. Cooperative Extension-Camden Center, located at 120 NC Highway 343 North, Camden. The referendum is being held to let users and producers of feed or fertilizer decide if they wish to continue the self-assessment program. This program has been in place since 1948, and the law requires that a new referendum be held every six years. A 2/3 favorable vote will mean that growers are willing to continue to assess themselves to support agricultural research and education. The assessment is fifteen cents per hundred pounds on feed and fertilizer produced in NC. The funds, about $1.4 million annually, are collected by the NC Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and then allocated by the NC Carolina Agricultural Foundation, Inc.’s 148 volunteer Board of Directors to support agricultural research and extension projects at NC State University benefitting agriculture in North Carolina.
