Golden Harvest Delivers ‘Best Grain Crop We’ve Ever Had’
Raymond, MN: It’s safe to say former Minnesota Corn Growers Association president Noah Hultgren knows a thing or two about corn. The fourth-generation farmer knows a good hybrid when he sees one – it’s what led him to Golden Harvest® Corn three years ago and has kept him coming back.
With an 8,000-cow operation located just a few miles away from his farm, most of Hultgren’s corn is used for silage.
“We’re paid on tonnage, and getting 25 tons is similar to 200 bu/A,” he said. “This year’s Golden Harvest Corn is the best grain crop we’ve ever had – we’ve never yielded more than 200 bu/A before, but we did this year.”
Hultgren’s favorite for 2016 was Golden Harvest hybrid G01P52-3011A brand. An Agrisure Artesian® hybrid, G01P52-3011A brand converts water to grain more effectively than other hybrids.
From emergence to harvest, he’s been impressed with his Golden Harvest hybrids’ standability. As a grower who sells his crop for tonnage, he it’s important for his corn to continue standing strong through November.
“Overall, I’ve had a positive experience with Golden Harvest, so I’d say it’s worth giving it a shot,” Hultgren said. “They have a good variety of hybrids.”
