This week our Seed Specialist, Jay Whalen from Streator, Illinois, sent me a picture from his area. He has been spending a lot of time in his customers’ fields and has noticed a trend. The Genuity StaxRIB hybrids have been showing the least amount of ear feeding and in some fields the difference is significant. Leitz Consulting is evaluating the situation and is helping Jay decide if the fields that are not planted with StaxRIB should be aerial spayed with insecticide. As this picture circulated between our different sales territories, it is becoming obvious that most Seed Specialists are experiencing the same results.
Ryan Bell from Covington, Indiana says "We are selling the best traits available". For the 2014 growing season, ProHarvest will offer 12 Genuity ®SmartStax Complete™ hybrids. We are excited about these many offerings.
