Varieties of several forage-crop species are evaluated every year in Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station (MAFES) small-plot forage trials. Entries are provided by seed companies and forage and breeding programs at state universities. Experimental and commercially available varieties are tested at one or more locations across Mississippi. All entries from privately owned companies are tested on a fee basis. Standard varieties may be added by the MAFES variety-testing program as a reference for comparison purposes. In addition, varieties of interest may also be added when applicable. Sources of seed are presented in Table 19. Testing during 2017–18 was conducted at the North Mississippi Branch Experiment Station at Holly Springs, Leveck Animal Research Center Forage Unit at Mississippi State University, Coastal Plain Branch Experiment Station at Newton, and White Sands Research Unit at Poplarville.
