CropTalk: Fresh, New Corn Products for 2021

March 2021

Published on Monday, March 1, 2021

 

Each year we launch new and exciting corn products with added yield and additional agronomic strengths. The process to evaluate each class takes years and hundreds, if not thousands, of trials to assess the strengths and weaknesses of each product. It is rigorous; from field observations to data analysis, thousands of hybrids must be narrowed down to a select few that will be launched in our commercial lineup. These are the “best of the best” hybrids from the most elite breeding programs in the world.

After a product is launched, we look forward to seeing them out in customers’ fields, managing them for success, and positioning them where they have the best regional fit. These are like our children; we know them inside and out and, of course, are rooting hard for their success. Below are just a few of the products we are most excited to have on your farm for the coming years.
