Conventional Corn

How can we offer $85 unit of corn?

Traditional seed distribution channels involve a lot of fixed costs that are passed on to the farmer. Think billboards, commissions, cruises... We can offer an $85 unit, because we remove the costs that don't contribute to performance in the field. What we offer is simple: quality genetics direct from the producer.

Our Story

We believe in helping farmers win, by removing the overhead of traditional distributors.

Hybrid85 was founded by Mike Ackerman, a software developer, and Nate Belcher, a crop consultant and owner of a traditional seed company. We noticed a huge amount of overhead and markup between seed companies and farmers and set out to get rid of the divide between buyers and growers. This led us to first launch Cover Crop Exchange, and now Hybrid85 to bring that same model to the seed corn industry. Our mission is to help farmers increase their profitability by connecting growers and buyers directly, using technology.

H100SC9 Conventional

  • Dual purpose: Silage or Grain
  • Low lignin=highly digestible silage
  • Good plant health

H100SC9 Conventional

100 Day

H100SC9 is a dual-purpose variety for grain or silage. Excellent silage variety due to low lignin levels which produces a very digestible silage. Works very well in Wisconsin, southern MN and MI. Low lignin levels mean that it does not have the best stalks. Because of this we recommend keeping this variety out of west and central NE. Has great ear flex and has the potential for good grain yields in areas where green snap is not a big problem.

H105C9 Conventional

  • Excellent foliar disease package
  • Offers stability and good top end
  • Tough hybrid

H105C9 Conventional

105 Day

H105C9 is a superb variety for your corn acres that require a hybrid that can offer stability as well as good yield potential in favorable growing seasons. H105C9 is the product of crossing a โ€œworkhorseโ€ male with a โ€œracehorseโ€ female. This allows this hybrid to offer stability in less than ideal growing conditions but with good top end potential. Similar to H103C9 but with more top end in exchange for a little less stability.

Not well suited for grain production on highly productive, irrigated acres.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

How does ordering and delivery work?
Ordering:
There are no minimum order sizes: 1 bag to 1000 bags has the same $85/unit price.
Orders can be placed in multiple ways depending upon what is easiest for you.
1. You can purchase through our website in which you submit an order for however many units you are looking to purchase. Add what seed you want to order to your cart. Then, the checkout flow includes calculating shipping price based on your farm's location and unloading options. Once you submit an order, our system will send an online payable invoice via Quickbooks. Orders are not considered final until payment is received.
2. You can also give us a call and we can take orders over the phone and answer any questions you may have, as well as over email if you prefer.

Shipping:
All purchases are FOB direct shipped (to any of the 48 continental United States) as we do not have regional dealers which is part of what allows us to offer an $85 unit. Once payment has been received, we will book shipping and send you tracking information once it is available. If you have any questions or concerns during the process, please don't hesitate to reach out and we will assist you.
How do I pay?
The last step of the checkout process gives you three options for payment:
1. Mail a check -- This is the slowest method available and orders are not considered final (no seed reserved) until payment has been received.
2. e check / ACH payment -- This is the most convenient method as it processes fast and without a transaction fee. This requires your checking account's: routing number, account number, and bank name. All information that is already found on your checks.
3. Credit Card -- This method is also fast, but does carry a processing fee. We are charged 2.9% for processing credit cards.
Do you have any yield data?
Unfortunately, we do not have any published yield data available at this time. We will have more information in the future. Depending upon what you are looking for, we have hybrids with the ability to push yield, along with products which are workhorse varieties that are not bred for top yield, but are bred to do exceedingly well on tough/marginal ground. If you want to send over some more details about your growing conditions and soil type, we can give a better recommendation. Thanks!
What is the treated seed treated with? Is it all treated?
As far as seed treatment goes we are using a Fungicide/Insecticide treatment: Nufarm products which are Sativa, Sebring, Senator and Spirato. Active ingredients are: Tebuconazole, Metalaxyl, Imidacloprid, Fludioxonil.
For planting year 2019, it is now all treated. For planting year 2020, if you order before end of the year you can choose treated or untreated.
Is your seed roundup ready?
No it is not.

As far as herbicide program, I would reach out to your local chemical dealer or coop. Simple recommendations based on no till:
-Grass control is the most important weed issue with conventional corn. You can utilize a burndown such as round up but cannot spay over growing crop. It is recommended to use a good pre-emergent such as Dual II Magnum, Harness, Outlook, or Surpass NXT if you are no-till.
-Accent Q can be used post emergence for grass control in corn but is relatively expensive.
-Broadleaf weeds can be controlled with Atrazine and 2,4-D or any other broadleaf herbicide labeled for use in corn. While we hope this helps, we recommend getting in contact with your local chemical dealer for more detailed instructions.
Can I pick up the seed to save on shipping?
Unfortunately, no. We utilize a 3rd party for warehousing and distribution in order to service shipping throughout the country.
Do you have seed for my area? How do I know which seed for my area?
We ship all over the continental United States.
To determine which seed for your area, please see the maps on the individual product popups.
The maps are ideal growing locations for each variety, but that doesn't mean you won't have success in other regions.
How many seeds are in a unit? What is the seed size?
A unit is an 80,000 kernel bag. If you would like a particular seed shape or size, get in touch with us prior to ordering and we will do our best to get you exactly what you need.
What do you mean by conventional?
No genetically modified traits (non roundup-ready, BT, etc.).
Where are you located? Where is the local rep?
Our offices are located in Omaha, Nebraska, and the seed is produced here in the midwest.
We do not have any local dealers, which is part of how we can offer $85/unit of corn.
Anything less than 87 day?
Our 87 day could be used as an 85 day, otherwise check back next growing season as we plan to have many more products in our lineup.
Do you have a catalog or more literature?
No we do not. Our website is our catalog. If you'd like to discuss more or have any specific questions about our hybrids, please don't hesitate to contact us for more information.
Is this seed organic?
It is not certified organic. However, it is conventional non-genetically modified yellow corn that is available untreated upon request.
What is your replant policy?
We do not have a replant policy and the reason for that is that we believe we can save farmers significantly more money by not including that associated cost into every bag. We strive to be a no frills, lost cost provider of quality genetics and part of that model includes cutting the costs associated with replant. Our goal is to bring maximum value to the farmer and when we looked at a replant policy, we determined it to be more beneficial to provide seed at a extremely affordable price in exchange for providing replant.
