Introducing New Corn Hybrids for 2024

BY Ryan Mueller, Product Portfolio/Agronomy Leader

After wrapping up my 27th advancement meeting, I was asked, “How do you continue to stay excited about the process?”. The answer is easy -- it is all about the products.

In my opinion, if you can’t get fired up to introduce each new class, then you might be in the wrong line of work. Every year we start with the overarching goal of deciding how we can make our line up better. After that, the fun begins. For me scouring through data is my happy place. Over time our process has changed. I can’t count the number of databases that have come and gone, and I’m now on my third germplasm base, but data is still data. Working through how each product fits into our portfolio comes down to trusting that you have sliced the data every which way and have the confidence that it can come into our geography and improve our lineup.

Each year creates its own set of challenges. I guess that is what happens when you combine Mother Nature and corn genetics. However, this gives us a great opportunity to tweak our selection criteria and ensure that our lineup will always continue to evolve. I am confident that the class of 2024 will continue to raise the bar performance for Dairyland Seed.

  • Growing Degree Unit Compression
    The extended cool and wet weather has kept many of us out of the fields and has raised concerns about planting delays, especially if replants are needed. A common question among growers is whether they should consider switching some of their full-season hybrids to shorter-maturity hybrids, and if so, how soon? The short answer to that question is no, it’s still a little early to consider switching hybrids. Although delayed planting shortens the growing season, the main driver is still growing degree units (GDUs) for the plant to reach physiological maturity before a killing frost.
