Extension Agents use many tools to inform growers about the latest advances in their area of interests. One of those tools is variety trials. The Northeast Ag Expo Team, consisting of members from the Extension Centers of Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Gates, Pasquotank and Perquimans counties, work together as well as with growers and seed companies to conduct variety trials. By having the same varieties planted across the northeast, we are able to determine which varieties perform and yield well across a wide range of conditions. These trials allow agents and producers to become more familiar with the varieties that are sold in the region. Also, the yield and sometimes certain agronomic traits are evaluated and this information is shared with growers. With the Expo variety trial data and other data, growers use this information in selecting varieties that they will plant next year.
