Western Research and Demonstration Farm
Corn hybrid genetics change yearly to increase productivity. More and more frequently corn hybrids come as a double or triple stack, and in the near future, quad and 8-stack hybrids will be on the market. There is the question as to whether these traits perform as well as the parent seed and even whether the multiple traits are needed within the same hybrid. This trial will start to look at genetic isoline performance.
