The corn variety test is made up of tests planted at several locations throughout the state. Multiple-year and multiple-location data are presented which can be used as a basis for variety selection. The locations are as follows: Blackville - Southern coastal plain dry land and irrigated; Florence - Northern coastal plain dry land and irrigated; Clemson - piedmont bottomland. The data for the current crop year is usually posted in October or November.
The dry land test at Pendleton was lost due to extremely dry and hot weather in 2016.
