Interpretive Summary: Development of new crop varieties is a data-driven process that relies on the integration of multiple sources of data such as genetic, performance, and environmental data. Integration of these datasets provides a wealth of information from which scientists can research crop responses to differing environments. The Genomes to Fields project has assembled a large data set encompassing several hundred maize hybrids grown across dozens of environments. The project is ongoing and will continue to accumulate new data as a resource for diverse scientific inquiry. This report covers the public release of datasets for 2014-2017.

Technical Abstract: Advanced tools and resources are needed to efficiently and sustainably produce food for an increasing world population in the context of variable environmental conditions. The maize Genomes To Fields (G2F) initiative is a multi-institutional initiative effort that seeks to approach this challenge by developing a flexible and distributed infrastructure addressing emerging problems. G2F has generated large-scale phenotypic, genotypic and environmental datasets using publicly available inbred lines and hybrids evaluated through a network of collaborators that are part of the G2F’s genotype-by-environment (G × E) project. This report covers the public release of datasets for 2014-2017.
