Water-Optimized Hybrids Shine in Wet Conditions

October 20, 2016

Ettrick, WI: Recent rain slowed down many growers’ harvest in the western part of Wisconsin this year. Thanks to his Golden Harvest® Corn, Ken Zeigler has been able to move full steam ahead despite the weather Mother Nature sent his way.

“Our sandier soils really helped us this year,” said Zeigler, whose farm is located just 30 miles east of the Mississippi River. “The weather was in our favor with the type of soils we have, and that’s helped us to average more-than-200-bushel hybrids.”

Zeigler planted Golden Harvest G07B39-3111A brand, an Agrisure Artesian® hybrid designed to maximize yield when it rains and increase yield when it doesn’t. Artesian™ hybrids are built to be solid performers regardless of the weather conditions. So far, Zeigler has recorded yields as high as 250 bu/A.


After a wet season, Ken Zeigler’s yields benefited from his Artesian™ hybrids’ ability to maximize yield when it rains.
