A Seal of Approval from Fifth-Generation Farmer

Remsen, IA: Jeff Pottebaum represents the fifth generation of farmers in his family, and this year marked his 27th of growing corn. It hasn’t always been Golden Harvest® Corn, but after his local Golden Harvest Seed Advisor™ suggested several years ago that he give it a try, Pottebaum hasn’t looked back.

Despite experiencing two heavy bouts of rainfall – one at planting and the other in August – as well as several windstorms and local threats from European corn borer, Pottebaum found himself grinning from ear to ear as he closed out the season with great yields. Golden Harvest hybrid G02W74 brand, a hybrid he’s been growing since 2013 because of its excellent stalk strength, emergence and moisture content, hit yields as high as 265 bu/A.

“I plan to keep planting it until I’m proven wrong,” Pottebaum said.
