It all starts with plant breeding. Germplasm is the building block for better products. When beginning the breeding process, we start with a larger genetic pool of possible products, narrow them down in less time and test more high-potential top performers in fields like yours.
In this phase, we begin selecting the products to undergo local testing. We use local breeding and technology development plots to understand early product potential and determine which products perform best under differing agronomic conditions.
Pre-commercial Hubner Seed adds a layer of local testing, the Field Fit program, and tests those products that have been identified as having strong Eastern performance. With the help of our plot cooperators, these products undergo intense testing to make sure we identify those products that meet your needs and are a true “fit” for growers within the Hubner Seed footprint.
Adding to the Hubner Seed™ Product Lineup
Finally, along with harvest data, we compile field observations and data from Hubner Seed advisors and farmers to select only those products that meet the Field Fit standards. These products are introduced each year in our Hubner Seed Field Fit agronomy program, and those that meet the rigorous standard end up in our product lineup.
I tried Hubner Seed™ a few years ago, and it has earned a place on my farm. The products are healthy and consistent. Today I am 100% a customer for corn and beans.
