It can be very challenging to locate information about individual ISU Extension publications via the library website. Quick Search will list the name of the series, but it will not list individual publications within each series. The Parks Library Reference Collection has a List of Current Series, Serial Publications (Series Publications of Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service), published as of March 2004. It lists each publication from 1888-2004 (by title and publication number - and in some cases it will show an author name).

Abstract

The Iowa corn yield test is conducted annually to provide impartial comparable performance records on a relatively large number of hybrid combinations. Each hybrid tested is ranked by a performance score based on yield, dry matter content of grain, lodging' resistance and the percentage of ears held on the stalks.

In view of the present world food need, it is important that farmers plant hybrids adapted to their particular locality. The information. presented gives a reliable estimate of the relative performance of a considerable number of hybrids when grown in different areas of Iowa.
