Corn and Grain Sorghum Research Verification Program (CGSRVP)

2023 is the 23rd year for the Corn and Grain Sorghum Research Verification Program which started in 2000 with the formation of the Arkansas Corn and Grain Sorghum Board. The Board helps fund the program through a corn and grain sorghum checkoff program.

Anyone interested in enrolling in the program should contact their local County Extension Agent.


Heat Units

Heat units or Growing Degree Units (GDUs) help predict the growth of corn. Heat units can be used to help with fertilizer applications, predicting tasseling or maturity.
