Preliminary results are attached from the 2014 official grain sorghum hybrid trials. Results presented include individual hybrid trials from the six statewide locations as well as the average yield across all trial locations. This information should be utilized as a tool to aid in the coming year’s hybrid
selection. In the coming weeks we should have the complete hybrid test information available including all agronomic variables. As this was a challenging year for insect damage and disease pressure, this information should be used as well to guide hybrid decisions. Please note that as these are preliminary results some information, including addition or removal of hybrids, may be warranted following analysis of the complete data set.
