Corn harvest is 75% complete, and yields have been coming in higher than anticipated. Many happy Latham Hi-Tech Seeds customers have said their average yields are anywhere from 185 to 220 bushels, so they were glad they worked with us on cropping plans for the 2011 season. Many agree that working with their Latham RSM to place products by field has pushed their average yields up into the 200-bushel ranges consistently. Consider making LH 5686 VT3 a part of your 2012 cropping plan. This product has proven itself in field time and time again, plus it’s placed in the top three of all of my plots. It’s definitely an impressive hybrid to keep an eye on!
Soybean harvest is 95% complete. There are a few fields that have yet to be harvested mainly due to a little moisture last week. This year has proven to be another great year for Latham® soybeans in my area. Many growers are consistently getting yields in the mid-70 bushel range this season with Latham L2440R2.
