Syngenta Seeds, Inc. reported impressive corn harvest results for their yield-maximizing hybrids available from its Garst, Golden Harvest and NK Seeds businesses.
"Our commitment to delivering diverse genetics combined with high-performance traits is really proving its yield advantage in the field this fall," said Tracy Mader, head of Syngenta Seeds' corn and soybeans product marketing. "Additionally, in areas where the Goss's wilt outbreak occurred, growers are experiencing the risk reduction benefits of Syngenta's diverse genetics with hybrids tolerant to this challenging disease."
Syngenta's outstanding performance this growing season can be attributed to their wide offering of products featuring innovative Agrisure traits, coupled with diverse genetics developed from the industry's deepest germplasm pool. For 2011, Syngenta is introducing 140 new corn hybrids to growers.
