Variety & Agronomic Trials

We perform research activities on cultivars of grain and silage corn, soybean, grain and silage sorghum, wheat, barley, sunflower, triticale, summer and winter annual forage, developed by public and private bodies during every crop year. Such research is conducted in every geographic region of Italy to collect agronomic data.

These two activities can be distinguished through the applied comparison method:

  • Varietal comparisons put different genetic materials belonging to the same species/genus in the same environment, study their behaviour in terms of production, vegetative productivity and phenotype while comparing them to known materials (testers);
  • Agronomic tests compare one or more genetic materials belonging to the same species/genus when agronomic and/or agro-technical factors change, thus enhancing their productive potential.
