Good quality corn should always be filled to the end of the ear with solid, heavy kernals. Minerals are essential for doing that, and with Planters II you can count on filled ears, increasing both quality and yields. The picture above is taken near Goodland Kansas. The fields in the area were having issues with small ears or ears half filled. Our customers had the highest yields in the area with full sized ears, completely filled with kernals.

While unheard of a few years ago, brix studies have shown increased quality, yields, insect resistance, and flavors for crops. In 2010, corn was being purchased with high brix levels for ethanol processing, and our local customers were asked to plant with an expensive high sugar seed to provide optimal corn. Our customers countered the request by showing Planters II mixed with traditional seed produces higher brix than the high sugar seed. They further showed that even wih high sugar seed, Planters II continues to increase the sugar levels. The ethanol facility learned Planters II customers had better quality corn.
