Hundreds of millions of dollars per year are spent on corn hybrid enhancement, for both conventional and biotech research. This research and development applies to grain and silage products. The development of corn hybrids and management techniques has been nothing short of amazing.

In the 1950, the average U.S. corn yield was about 40 bushels/acre. In 1970, the average had increased 175% to about 70 bushels/acre. In 1990, yields jumped 150% to about 105 bushels/acre. And in 2010, the average U.S. corn yield increased 133% to about 140 bushels/acre.

Selecting the best hybrids for your farm is not a simple proposition. It usually requires the assistance from your local agronomist. Further assistance is needed these days to stay on top of the latest planting (population) suggestions, nutrient programs, and chemical programs. However, it all starts with selecting the best hybrids for your ground.

AgService Seeds supplies an extensive portfolio that includes some of the largest corn brands – DeKalb, Pioneer and Mycogen. With this line-up of products, AgService Seeds can provide the ideal corn hybrid(s) for your soil and management preferences.
