Hybrid Corn Seed & Planting Resources

Everybody sells the same corn and traits…..right?

Because a small number of companies supply a majority of traits currently being planted in the US and corn growers are savvy to that fact, that question is posed to us on a fairly regular basis.  The short answer would be NO. A good answer however, requires some additional information that could be of value to growers as they select their planting seed each year.

  1. While trait suppliers are few in number, their offering of the various traits are a bit like a menu in a Greek restaurant with many excellent choices available.
  2. Companies are able to select a “special combo” or buy ala cart depending on the needs of their customers.
  3. In the case of Nuseed, our main customer focus is in a relatively tight geography and maturity range.
  4. If a customer needs a rootworm trait (or two in some cases) Nuseed will have product supplies designated for maturity zones where rootworm is recognized as a significant pest.  On the other hand, in the 75-80 day maturity range we will offer products that will not all carry rootworm trait and that will be reflected in our pricing to the grower.
  5. Setting aside the trait issues there is another factor at least as important….that of genetics.  There are more options available thru more breeding programs than were available 10 years ago.  Many of these hybrid lines are new and extremely high performance products.
  6. The importance of selecting great northern genetics even before considering which traits our growers need is not lost on the people at Nuseed.
  7. Each year the product advancement team at Nuseed looks at hundreds of potential hybrids at various locations in the Dakota’s and western MN to compare genetic yield capability before determining which traits should be offered in a particular hybrid.

A key take home from the points made above is that there are very few hybrids that are the same especially when considering both the genetic diversity factor and then trait incorporation in commercial hybrids offered by Nuseed.  This regional focus and the expectations of our customers is really what drives us to select varieties that work well for our growers.
