We recently planted a large seed variety trial plot here at The Farm Research Center. This is an experiment done to see which seed varieties are growing best in this years conditions. For our plot, we planted a total of 41 different seed varieties. We planted 8 rows of filler seed at each edge of the field, then planted 4 rows of each seed variety. All variables, such as seed population and planting conditions, are the same for each seed variety. At harvest, we will calculate which varieties of seed did the best by calculating things like yield and pods per plant.
