Maximizing yield potential starts with product selection. This is particularly true when managing Goss’s wilt in corn and iron deficiency chlorosis (IDC) in soybean.
Generally, the first selection criteria when choosing a seed product is yield potential, followed by various agronomic characteristics. When selecting seed products, the emphasis or ranking of agronomic characteristics and traits to consider can vary from one field’s priorities to another. Growers should evaluate product selection and placement on a field-by-field basis, matching yield, agronomic traits, and disease tolerance to their operation. New corn and soybean products to consider for 2018 and some of the key ratings to consider for selecting a product are listed in Tables 1 and 2.
