Corn and grain sorghum performance tests are conducted each year in Arkansas by the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture. The tests provide information to companies marketing seed within the state and aid the Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service in formulating recommendations for producers. The 2002 corn performance tests contained 59 entries and were conducted at the Northeast Research and Extension Center (NEREC) at Keiser, the Cotton Branch Station (CBS) near Marianna, the Bell Farming Company (BFC) near Des Arc, the Southeast Research and Extension Center - Rohwer Division (SEREC-RD) near Rohwer, and the John Williams Farm (JWF) in Lafayette County. The 2002 grain sorghum performance tests contained 34 entries and were conducted at the NEREC at Keiser, the CBS near Marianna, the Pine Tree Experiment Station (PTS) near Pine Tree, the SEREC-RD near Rohwer, and the Rice Research and Extension Center (RREC) near Stuttgart. Test location maps for grain sorghum and corn can be found inside the back cover.
