Expanding Corn Research in Idaho - Update



By Olga Walsh, Jordan McClintick-Chess, and Steven Blanscet, University of Idaho, Parma Research & Extension Center
In 2016, over 320,000 acres were planted to corn in Idaho, up 14 percent from last year. The newly developed hybrids are not only much more high-yielding but also more efficient in n uptake and utilization. As corn acreage is expanding throughout Idaho and the PNW, the crop is grown in a wide variety of climatic and environmental conditions.
