Conventional Corn Hybrids
Yield, genetic diversity, agronomic characteristics, and stability are attributes we consider on all of our hybrids. Our Conventional hybrids were developed through traditional breeding methods, as well as using new genetic marking technologies. Our Conventional lineup represents the highest yielding germplasm in the marketplace today. Our genetically diverse Conventional hybrids are suited for the multiple environments, management practices, and marketing goals of the farms we sell. The seed parenting on these lines do not contain Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s) and may be suitable for a Non-GMO market for the Conventional corn grower.
