Top products still available in the midst of record sales for Beck's Hybrids

February 18, 2013

Atlanta, Indiana – As spring quickly approaches farmers across the Midwest are fine-tuning tractors, adjusting planters and finalizing seed orders. Even with an increase of more than 15 percent in corn orders, Beck’s Hybrids has an excellent supply of high performing corn and soybean products still available for Midwest farmers to purchase.

“Last spring we planted twice the amount of seed we sold the previous year, across a wider geography and across a nine week period, giving us an advantage in our overall seed supply,” said Sonny Beck, president of Beck’s Hybrids. “With this increase in production acres, the use of winter production, and seed in cold storage, we’re able to have many of the best performing products available for Midwest farmers.”

From 101 to 115 day, Beck’s Hybrids has a wide range of high performing corn products available, including its number one selling product, BECK 6175AMX-R ™*, which is a 112-day, refuge-in-the-bag product that produces top yields across various soil types. Several other products are also available in Optimum® AcreMax® Xtra (refuge-in-the-bag), AcreMax® (refuge-in-the-bag), Agrisure® 3000GT, Agrisure® Viptera® , Herculex® XTRA with Roundup Ready® Corn 2, Roundup Ready Corn 2, traited waxy, waxy, and traditional corn hybrids.

Not only does Beck’s have a great supply of corn products, but they have top performing soybean products available in LibertyLink® and Roundup Ready, ranging from 2.9 to 4.3 relative maturities. Standard in every bag of soybeans, Beck’s soybean products are treated with Escalate® yield enhancement system, which is a seed applied insecticide and fungicide that includes root growth biologicals. According to a three year study performed in Beck’s Practical Farm Research (PFR)® , Escalate delivered an average yield advantage of 5.4 Bu./A. when compared to untreated seed.1

“We want farmers to know that if they are in need of seed, we still have high quality products available,” said Scott Beck, vice president of Beck’s Hybrids.
