2023 Kansas Performance Tests reports for corn, soybeans, grain sorghum, and sunflowers

Share Tweet Email

The 2023 Kansas Performance Test Reports for corn, soybeans, grain sorghum, and sunflowers are now available online. These reports include the results of the crop performance trials. Each report also includes a summary of the 2023 crop, with a detailed discussion summarizing the statewide growing conditions, diseases, and insects.

The crop performance tests are conducted annually by the Kansas State University Department of Agronomy. The Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station distributes the annual reports to provide farmers, extension workers, and seed industry personnel with unbiased agronomic information on many of the hybrids marketed in Kansas. Entry fees from private seed companies finance the tests. Because entry selection and location are voluntary, not all hybrids grown in the state are included in tests, and the same group of hybrids is not grown uniformly at all test locations.
