The research by AgroCenter will be centered on developing new uses for corn and improving sustainable production. The research will aid in production efficiency and reduce the environmental impact of corn production. This will be the key to advancing the industry and an important point for the future economic viability of corn farmers countrywide. Specific objectives of this research focus on crop productivity, quality, and production efficiency including hybrid selection, rotation, tillage systems, and replant and yield loss damage assessments.
In order, therefore, to gain a better understanding of what constitutes quality, and of the relation of varietal differences research objective may be extended to include not only the sweet but also representatives of the flint, dent, and flour corns, waxy maize, and other well-known or special types not previously investigated.
