The Manitoba Corn Committee (MCC) is a group of individuals from the Manitoba Corn Growers Association (MCGA), Canadian Seed Trade Association (CSTA) and Manitoba Agriculture who are interested with the production of grain corn in Manitoba. The committee has the authority within the Province of Manitoba to conduct trials of corn hybrids with the goal to provide information to Manitoba producers about the performance of corn hybrids across corn growing regions of Manitoba. The MCC publishes the data annually in the “Manitoba Corn Hybrid Performance Trials” brochure.

*Please note a correction needing to be made in the silage data sheets: All hybrids are evaluated at a plant population of 32,000 plants per acre, rather than 28,000 plants per acre. The MCC changed this in 2015 and failed to update it in the final silage data sheets.
