In 2013, the University of Vermont Extension conducted an organic silage corn variety trial. The purpose of the study was to provide unbiased performance comparisons of commercially available organic silage corn varieties. It is important to remember, however, that the data presented are from a replicated research trial from only one location in Vermont and represent only one season. The 2013 growing season was a challenging season for corn production and hence the results were less than favorable. However varieties that were able to thrive in these adverse conditions would likely be varieties that could produce well in a variety of conditions. Crop performance data from additional tests in different locations and over several years should be compared before making varietal selections.
