Don't sweat seed supply

12/17/2013 @ 1:55pm

If this year’s waterlogged late planting, shortage of heat units, and late-season drought have you concerned about 2014 seed supplies, breathe easy. For the most part, seed companies say 2014 seed supplies will be sufficient.

Jeff Hartz, director of marketing for Wyffels Hybrids, has a positive outlook for the 2014 seed supply. “We are in great shape. There were some issues early on in the season,” says Hartz. However, he believes the cool pollination window helped make up lost ground in seed production.

Many other seed companies echo this sentiment. “We feel good. We went into this year with one of the biggest seed supply plans we have ever had,” says Morgan Dugan, Channel brand lead.
