Corn Discovery Plots Yield Valuable Info

plot harvest

Federated Co-ops' Discovery Plot system provides local (east-central MN and western WI) data that compares the hybrids from six major seed suppliers: DeKalb®, Croplan®, Renk®, Legend®, NK®, and Mycogen®. The results from these plots provide valuable information for 2018 seed choices.

Craig Gustafson, Federated's eastern area agronomy division manager, said, " What we found in this year's plots was real tight yield numbers. If there was a hybrid that didn't perform in one location, we found it to yield at another. This is powerful information for both our customers and the Federated Agronomy team." Gustafson added that "knowing the strengths of where to place a hybrid is critical to the success of the hybrid and the return on investment for the grower."
