About the Crop Variety Trials

When farmers are ready to make seed choices, the University of Minnesota field crop trials offer unbiased and trustworthy information. The annual Field Crop Trials are one of the keyways MAES works to bring valuable research into the hands of farmers and ultimately help improve farm profitability, improve the economy and overall quality of life in Minnesota.

Since the late 1880s, MAES has published reports of crop variety trials but it wasn’t until 1948 that the trials were combined into a single annual publication. Today, the annual field crop trials are designed in-house and published online at varietytrials.umn.edu and feature several crops that are trialed at multiple Research and Outreach Centers and cooperating farmers’ fields across the state. The Sand Plain Research Farm hosts several crop variety trials.
