CROPLAN® seed local agronomists offer a full range of high-performing genetics and crop production expertise to help you match the right corn hybrids to the right soil type at the right population in the right field. With the help of your CROPLAN® seed local agronomist, you can evaluate all contributing factors to arrive at the smartest seed decisions for your most complex production problems in your toughest fields.
There is no “perfect hybrid” for all situations. If there were, everyone would plant the same hybrid. Each hybrid has a specific set of soil types, fertility levels, production practices and weather conditions that maximize its genetic potential. The ideal environment for each hybrid depends on the strengths and weaknesses of the genetic families used by the plant breeder to develop that particular hybrid. Various deviations, observed in hybrid performance in different corn-growing environments and under varying weather conditions, are a function of these genetic families.
The performance of different genetics in varying environments is called the genetics-by-environment interaction. We deliver superior-performing corn genetics with hybrid-specific management and placement information, maximizing each hybrid’s genetic potential based on its genetic family background.
