Golden Harvest introduces new corn hybrids, soybean program

Agriculture.com Staff 10/11/2006 @ 1:29pm

Golden Harvest Seeds this week introduced an expanded scope of genetics in the company's product line-up.

Combined with Golden Harvest's returning conventional and technology seed products, farmers will find 52 new corn hybrids and 13 soybean varieties.

The new hybrids add to the following varieties available:

  • H-7625HX/LL with Herculex and Liberty Link
  • L-8H26Bt/RR YieldGuard Corn Borer Roundup Ready Corn 2 and Market Choices
  • H-8254GT with AgrisureTM Glyphosate and Market Choices. Does well against Northern corn leaf blight.
  • H-8952CB/LL with strong emergence, Gray leaf spot tolerance and strong root strength with Agrisure Corn Borer, YieldGuard and Liberty Link

Golden Harvest also recently introduced Advanced Soybean Management, a new program designed to help producers increase soybean production.

Company officials say they have combined the program incentive with the use of better management practices.

The premium amounts of the incentives are based on an increased purchase of NK Brand soybeans over the 2006 crop year, crop protection (CP) products used and yield of acres under advanced management.

The Advanced Soybean Management Program combines NK Brand Roundup Ready (RR) soybeans with the combination of the following crop protection products:

  • Seed treatment: CruiserMaxx Beans
  • Herbicides: Gramozone Max, Gramoxone Inteon, Dual MAGNUM, Dual II MAGNUM, Boundary, Flexstar, Reflex, Fusion, Fusilade DX and Prefix
  • Fungicides: Quadris, Quilt, Alto
  • Insecticides: Warrior with Zeon
