Planting Date and Hybrid Maturity Effects on Corn Yield in Iowa
Research evaluating the effects of planting date and hybrid maturity on corn yield is of vital importance to Iowa corn producers. The objectives of the study were:
- To identify an optimum date of planting, and
- To determine the most beneficial hybrid maturity at different planting dates.
