I’ve had the opportunity to harvest many of Latham® corn hybrids and amazed by the very consistent performance of LH 5426 VT3Pro. It’s been averaging 212 bushel per acre (bu/A). Another corn hybrid I really like is LH 5877 VT3Pro, which is also bringing in some very high yields in Southwest Wisconsin fields. This product has the ability to reach a new yield level with several of my growers. Last, but not least, are LH 5266 3000GT and LH 5268 3111GT. These two hybrids bring amazing yields for a 102-RM corn. They have a very good field appearance with easy harvest ability. In my opinion, a Wisconsin grower couldn’t go wrong if these four products are placed on their acres.
Soybeans have been a hot topic in our area this past week. The weather this past week has been what many would call as perfect as it gets for a great harvest. The only negative of this 80-degree weather is many of the beans have only been 9% moisture coming out of the fields. I’ve seen many yield monitors playing in the mid 60s to mid-70 bushel range this year. Some of our products, like Latham® L2440R2, have been reaching 80 bushels for whole-field averages! This particular soybean amazed many people last year and again this year. Another consistent yielder is L2084R2, which has the ability to push pods out of the top of the plant and allows it to catch that extra 3 bushel.
