The Impact of Boron on Corn

Posted by PRIDE Seeds on Sep 26, '18

This post is from our partners at PRIDE Seeds.

In this photo, the cob on the bottom shows the obvious impact of a boron deficiency. 

In late August, PRIDE Seeds agronomist Drew Thompson was called to visit a grower’s corn field where the complaint was ears that were small, misshapen and poorly pollinated. 

The grower was frustrated, but also confused as the same seed had been planted into another field, a few concessions away with a different soil and crop history, but the same fertility and agronomic program.

PRIDE Seeds Tops Competitors in Grazing Trial

Posted by CANTERRA SEEDS on Apr 21, '17

Grazing trials can be tough, so we're pleased to receive these third party results.

Grazing trials can be tough to do. Typically, these trials rely on anecdotal evidence to measure the performance of each corn hybrid, as opposed to scientific measurement. Statements like “the cows seem to like this one better,” or “they fed off this one longer,” are difficult to quantify. While we value all trials and the cooperators that run them, getting systematic, third party results helps verify the strength of the PRIDE Seeds products.
