At armor strip trial. To help advance new armor numbers that we potentially bring to market.
One experimental from last year that we are excited to bring to market in 2021 is 0711. It’s had a stellar and consistent performance.
Last year we not only ran the 0711 hybrid through strip trials but also through the first independent seed testing trials. It excelled in both.
In the first trials, located in southern WI and Norther IL, it placed 2nd among 66 hybrids. In the independent first trials located in central Iowa it placed 11th out of 54 hybrids.
From all the trials it has averaged in the top ten hybrids. Besides being reliable, it has shown excellent standability, and it comes out of the ground well.
