The CST program utilizes County Agents and local producers to evaluate variety performance in on-farm, large strip trials. Each trial is a minimum length of 300 feet and trials are managed using the producers’ chosen practices in accordance with UT recommendations. A special thanks to all Agents and producers involved, along with our seed industry partners!!
