Harvest 2021 is complete and ended nicely for us. In the field, drought conditions continue. Currently we are busy cleaning Barley seed.
Some seed varieties are priced and some we are still working on. Early pay discounts will be more this season and 25% down to hold seed as it is such a variable season for supplies.
I have sent Corn Seed prices to some of you, if you need a price please let me know as October is the best month to buy for discounts on corn. Below we have corn booking options (now is the best price) and then HRSW and Durum yield trial info.
We have pricing out for corn hybrids from Thunder Seed corn, and for October invoicing that can mean a range of $192.50-249.70 per bag for October pricing on some great varieties that are worth a try vs corn you are currently growing.

Grazing: you want a verity that hangs on:
Non GM Corn
A few people are also trying some non herbicide tolerant corn hybrids from De Dell to reduce seed cost as they were already using residual herbicides in corn https://imperialseed.com/portfolio-items/corn/
HRSW & Durum Trial
These trials were seeded late April meaning they were at the perfect time to be impacted by the heat in late June. Yields, yield differences, standability may be impacted vs other seasons. Keep in mind this is not scientific or replicated and is on irrigation, so dry land recommendations may be different. The plots were shorter due to heat stunting and had about 1' of rain on at maturity.
Barley results will be coming in a later email. Thanks to P&H Vulcan for grading.
AAC Wheatland along with AAC Russel VB (new) and AAC Leroy Vb toped the wheat plots.
Durum plots were led by AAC Stronghold (available also this season from us) & AAC Succeed VB
