Oct. 1, 2018 – With harvest 2018 in full swing, Eastern farmers are turning their focus to 2019 preparations. They’ll have a new option to consider as they think ahead to planting: Hubner Seed FortiField corn products, featuring enhanced agronomic characteristics plus improved disease protection.
Using superior genetics through enhanced breeding technologies, Hubner Seed FortiField products have been carefully developed and locally tested to provide high-performing agronomic advantages throughout the growing season from emergence through harvest. This includes early-season emergence and seedling vigor; midseason root and stalk strength and late-season health (staygreen); and harvest intactness. In addition, Hubner Seed FortiField products defend against local diseases including Gray Leaf Spot, Northern Corn Leaf Blight and Anthracnose Stalk Rot.
“The Hubner Seed FortiField package of unique agronomic characteristics and comprehensive protection from common and costly diseases are designed to give Eastern farmers peace of mind, from emergence through harvest,” says Andy Ackley, corn product manager. “These new products have been hand-selected by your local technical agronomists and are designed to perform in the East.”
These products are available for purchase for the upcoming 2019 planting season. For more information on purchasing the products, farmers can contact their local Hubner Seed Advisor or visit: www.hubnerseed.com/FortiField.
