Introduction

Choosing a modern high yielding and disease resistant variety that is adapted to your growing environent is one of the best management decisions you can make. Often a 30% yield difference between the best and the worst variety occurs at any given location each year, and these trends are repeatable over time. MSU researchers evaluate public as well as experimental crop varieties annually at several locations across the state. This website allows you to see and organize those results so you can choose an appropriate variety for your unique environment.

Thanks to the Montana Agricultural Experiment Station

Variety trial research is a coordinated effort conducted each year on University research farms and at Agricultural Research Centers located within the state of Montana. This work is accomplished by the plant breeders and their staffs located in the Deparments of Plant Sciences and Plant Pathology, and Animal and Range Sciences, and by the superintendents and staff at each of the Ag Research Centers. Certified seed for many of the varieties described here is available through the Montana Seed Growers Association.
