"Go give Hybrid85 a try on a little bit of your acres. After I penciled out the math, it worked for me, why can't it work for you?"
— Miles, New York
"Hybrid85 does the job it says it will. I tried a few bags in 2020, and now it’s all I’m planting for 2021. I don’t know a better testament than that."
— Alan, Utah
"We had the 114 day hybrid go 274 bushel at 15.8% moisture on a field-wide, irrigated pivot. I will take a yield like that any day of the week, while putting an extra $53/acre back in my pocket from seed savings per acre!"
— Tim, Nebraska
"The best corn silage crop I've ever raised. Even my insurance adjuster said it was the best silage he has looked at in the area."
— Dale, Minnesota
"All in all one of the best crops we have had in years."
— Kaleb, North Carolina
"Banker was on edge. Told him to relax — I need to make money and it worked even with the year we had. Net. Profit Up! 200 bag order first year... will try again because it helped my bottom line."
— John, Indiana
"Definitely a positive ROI on net profit per acre. Out-performed anything else we planted, but at a much better price point. Excited to give it another go in 2020!"
— Kevin, Alabama
"In this area, H117SC9 is a home run. For dryland acres around here, it's the one! It blew us away with how well it took to the lighter soils and handled the heat and drought we had. Those stalks at low pop were almost the size of a can drink."
— Aubrey, Alabama
"Best silage I have chopped off of that 80. Hauling in the silage was fun this year! It was yielding so well that we had trucks lining up to the dump, and the silage was flowing like shelled corn due to the high grain content."
— Carl, Kansas
"I was very impressed with the corn silage yield! It was the 4th year corn on corn and I expected a drop from previous years, but it clearly was a significant gain instead. No doubt, the better seed price helped just because it was two thirds the price I had paid previous years — even with the shipping cost added. Then the increased yield boosted profits even more!"
— Jerry, Wisconsin
"The weeds I have, glyphosate doesn't do a good job anyway, so it just makes sense to plant conventional, especially with the performance I saw. It sure helps out on maximizing net profit per acre. Just a no brainer for me!"
— Bee, Nebraska

Grower Notes 2 Long Dry Spells. Won test plot & field trails against 8 other hybrids. Best plant pop was 24.8-28k #3 in plot (30 hybrids) #1 in ROI Planted at 36k. Would probably take population down to around 30 for better standability. Did just as good as anything else No rains in August. Putting most acres in Milo No rains in August. Putting most acres in Milo Right next to NK (225 bu/acre), Agrigold variety (190 bu/acre) Average yield. Bad compaction on field. Did just as good as other hybrids Tough growing year. Very pleased w/ corn. Got very tall Light ground w/ no irrigation & dry spell 15 ft tall w/ zero snap According to insurance company - was cut for silage Pleased with it Made about 100 bushels. Which doesn’t sound good until you look at the triple stack Pioneer right beside it that made 80. Chopped for silage & grain. Was pleased "put an extra $53/acre back in my pocket from seed savings per acre!" "It by far exceeded our expectations by 30-40 bushel!" 27K final stand. Dryland. Top yielding irrigated hybrid on the farm did 202 bu/acre for comparison. The $85 bag out-yielded the seed that would have cost me $285. It’s very good corn priced very cheap 30-45 bu/acre more than competitor Did just as good $300/bag corn 2 bu off top hybrid in plot Thought it was short on late season N. Only was able to put 100 lb. N/acre Dryland starter only Did well on non weedy half Good tonnage Thought it was one of the best hybrids he has seen in awhile due to drought tolerance Not a perfect year, but still performed very well for us 5-10% better than $250/bag (RR) “It completely paid off, and it did great for me,” Weight difference had even his neighbors asking questions.
