Southwest Ohio Corn Growers and Fayette County Agronomy is having their annual Field Day August 14, time 9:30am-3:00pm, State Route 38, Washington CH OH near the Fayette County Airport. Admission is FREE!

The SWOCGA was organized in 1983 as a group of farmers and agri-business persons interested in determining which hybrids provided the most consistent yields season after season. In order to quantify their curiosity they developed a side by side strip-trial as their methodology to test the different hybrids. Over time, their hybrid test plots were found to be useful not only for their committee but also by area farmers as well. This test has been improved over the years to include a more rigorously designed randomized block, six separate locations, and statistical analysis of the results. In 2006, their test was expanded to include soybeans, which are tested at 3 locations in Central and Southern Ohio.
