Grower Sees Strong Yields Despite Soaked Surroundings
Zearing, IA: Growing conditions in central Iowa weren’t exactly ideal this season, and with saturated, wet soils from start to finish, harvest was no piece of cake. Despite this, Keith Frohwein was extremely pleased with his crops’ performance.
“I’m really happy with the genetics of my Golden Harvest® Corn. It looked good all year,” he said.
Frohwein had just finished harvesting Golden Harvest hybrid G02W74-3000GT brand, which averaged more than 200 bu/A with 15% drydown, when the Harvest Chasers caught up with him.
He had a similarly positive experience with NK® Soybeans S20-T6 brand, which he protected with Clariva® Complete Beans seed treatment, a combination of separately registered products. With yields around 55 bu/A, Frohwein plans on continuing to treat his soybeans with Clariva Complete Beans next year as well.
“The soybeans looked a little taller and a little bushier, and the yields were better,” Frohwein said.
