Hybrid Heroes for 2011

Hybrid Heroes for 2011

The hero of agriculture this year was the growing season. Most areas had exceptional weather, perfectly timed moisture and wonderful growing conditions. After last year’s drawn-out harvest, many farmers had the opportunity to start harvest on time this year, if not early. And now that the 2010 crop is out of the field, it’s time to look to 2011. Let your hybrid choice be the hero of next season.

What hybrids are new? What are companies offering? Corn & Soybean Digest has put together a list of top hybrids for you to peruse. This guide should be used as a starting point for selecting hybrids for next year. Be sure to also consider university, independent and company trial data when making our decisions.

2010 Home Run Hybrids Key

Hybrids are listed alphabetically by company, grouped into three relative maturity (RM) zones:
Early season (75-104 days)
