Oct. 1, 2018 – With harvest 2018 in full swing, Iowa farmers are turning their focus to 2019 preparations. They’ll have a new option to consider as they think ahead to planting: Kruger Seeds FortiField corn products, featuring enhanced agronomic characteristics plus improved disease protection.
Using superior genetics through enhanced breeding technologies, Kruger Seeds FortiField products have been carefully developed and locally tested to provide high-performing agronomic advantages throughout the growing season from emergence through harvest. This includes early-season emergence and seedling vigor; midseason root and stalk strength and late-season health (staygreen); and harvest intactness. In addition, Kruger Seeds FortiField products defend against local diseases including Gray Leaf Spot, Goss’s Wilt, Northern Corn Leaf Blight and Anthracnose Stalk Rot.
“The Kruger Seeds FortiField package of unique agronomic characteristics and comprehensive protection from common and costly diseases are designed to give Iowa farmers peace of mind, from emergence through harvest,” says Andy Ackley, corn product manager. “These new products have been hand-selected by your local technical agronomists and are designed to perform in Iowa.”
The Kruger Seeds FortiField offerings include seven products in maturities ranging from 101 to 114. They are:
