F.I.R.S.T. Yield Trials Are In

Choosing a corn hybrid gets a lot easier when you have 53,000 farm field trails to rely on. That's what F.I.R.S.T. (Farmer's Independent Research of Seed Technologies) is about: yield results from 950 corn hybrids tested on 150 different sites across 11 states, for a total of 53,000 trials. These are on-farm trials by growers just like you.

You can also find the results online by going to and clicking on the Special Reports tab in the Resources section.

Also, watch for the F.I.R.S.T. soybean yields in the December issue.
