Over 1000 products are evaluated each year to develop consistent performing, top-yielding hybrids for your farm.
Six research locations spread across Iowa and Illinois target sites with a variety of soil types and climate patterns across maturity zones.
Research efforts take place across diverse environments including corn-on-corn. We focus on three areas: plant health, ear and yield consistency and understanding hybrid placement.
70 acres of research plots at six unique locations gives us access to research data needed to make the best recommendations we can.
12 unique hybrids containing parent lines from Miller Hybrids research.
More accurate research is possible based on our technique of averaging the center four rows of an eight-row plot for yield data, which eliminates the risk of interplot competition.
By accessing an elite germplasm base and advanced biotech tools, we are able to develop certain conventional and traited hybrids that are only available through Miller Hybrids. These efforts will help provide a stream of performance hybrids into the future.
