Seeds Rightful Place

Every seed in your planter is full of promise. But if you plant it in the wrong place or in the wrong soil type, that seed won’t reach its potential. And neither will your yield.

However, when using the R7® Top 10 feature, growers benefit from variable-rate seeding methods.

Choosing the right seed

Many growers count on the R7 Top 10 feature when choosing seed. The tool provides a snapshot of top-performing hybrids in close proximities and on specific soil types. It even helps growers decide where to plant specific varieties and hybrids.

In addition to soil type, it’s important to look at photos to see ear flex, the number of kernels around and how different hybrids respond to different populations.

Local testimony on how the investment paid off

A local farmer recalls when their family selected a hybrid with a high response to both population and nitrogen several years ago. “We focused on a field that had what we believed was excellent potential based on soil type and nutrient-holding capacity,” he recalls. “We went all-in and pushed both population and nitrogen. At harvest, we achieved the highest yield we’ve ever had on that field.”

With the help of the Top 10, the local farmer’s family is pushing for higher ROI on more of their acres. They know where they can pull back on inputs and where they should invest more — starting with perfectly placed seed.

If you are interested in learning more about how the Top 10 could work to help you achieve optimal seed placement this season, contact your local Superior Ag Agronomy Sales Specialist.
