The corn from each plot is dumped into the seed tender with scales and then loaded on the hopper bottom after the weight is recorded.

A corn variety trial was planted in Evans County by Stephen Bell with the help of Candler/Evans County ANR Agent Ross Greene and the UGA Corn Specialist Corey Bryant back on April 2, 2021. The variety trial was located at Bell Farms off of HWY 169 on H.C. Hearn Rd. just south of Bellville, GA . The trial consisted of seven different corn varieties from different seed companies with three replications of each variety. The on-farm corn trial was harvested on September the 10, 2021 by Canoochee Farms, and the yield results are listed down below.

I want to thank Pioneer, Dekalb, NK Syngenta, Local Seed, and Dyna-Gro Seeds for donating us the plot seed. We would not be able to do plots like this without their support so thank your local seed reps when you see them. I also would like to thank Bell Farms for hosting the plot, Mr. Andy Hendrix with Canoochee Farms for harvesting it for us, and the guys at Local Seed for providing us a set of scales to weigh the plots. If any of you are interested in doing a plot next year please let me know this winter so we can make preparations.
