Top crosses will be evaluated for performance in early maturity environments of North Dakota. Lines will be selected based on a benchmark for yield and moisture of 101%, and 95-100% respectively. The selected lines will be studied for VAT's. Three stiff-stalk, and six non-stiff stalk populations will be advanced and further selected in the nursery for future development.
