Interpretive Summary: The Genomes to Fields Initiative serves as the foundation for studies of how genetic variation in corn impacts the yield of hybrids across diverse environments. This project unites efforts of more than 25 university and USDA researchers to test distinct corn hybrids at many different locations for two years each. The resulting genetic, trait, and environmental data are being used to identify genes and lines contributing to resilient corn yields and to develop new methods for predicting and selecting hybrids optimized for performance in different regions of the USA.

Technical Abstract: This release note describes the Maize G x E project datasets within the Genomes to Fields (G2F) Initiative. The Maize G x E project aims to understand genotype by environment (G × E) interactions and use the information collected to improve resource allocation efficiency and increase genotype predictability and stability, particularly in scenarios of variable environmental patterns. Hybrids and inbreds are evaluated across multiple environments and phenotypic, genotypic, environmental, and metadata information becomes publicly available.
