Good crop production strategies will not increase the yield of the hybrids you grow. Instead, good production practices help hybrids yield closer to their genetic potential by reducing yield-robbing factors in the field. This concept underscores the significance of hybrid selection. Since there are no management techniques to increase the genetic potential of hybrids, it is important to select hybrids with high yield potential.
