The objective of the preparation of this paper is to increase bioethanol production, to develop theories in the case of corn hybrids of high starch content, and to study hybrids that are the most favourable in terms of bioethanol production and to identify them by means of laboratory examination based on absorbed electromagnetic radiation in the near-infrared region of spectrum. The aim of the small-plot field experiments is to evaluate the impacts of growing technology factors (tillage, crop number, crop rotation, irrigation) on the yield of maize hybrids. This research is part of a several step laboratory examination which aims to detect the most suitable maize hybrids for bioethanol production analyzing a great number of maize hybrids.
