STINE SEED PRESIDENT COMMENTS ON SHORT-STATURE CORN HYBRIDS
BrownfieldAgNews reports:

Myron Stine and Brownfield Ag News' Mark Dorenkamp
The president of Stine Seed Company expects to see an uptick in short stature corn acres this year.

Myron Stine tells Brownfield it will probably be a slow adoption.

"We still believe, at the end of the day, that the newer genetics that roll out of the breeding programs, probably not even just ours but even our competitors, that you will have plants of a shorter stature relative to what we're seeing today."

His message to farmers planting short stature corn in 2024.

"In many cases, short stature corn typically needs higher planting populations. Which means it needs more inputs, you have a higher yield potential. And to get that yield potential, you need to make sure that you're managing that crop correctly."

Stine says farmers need to be mindful of shading when testing short stature corn, and cautions growers not to plant next to conventional hybrids.

Brownfield interviewed Stine at the 2024 Iowa Ag Expo in Des Moines.
