Miller Hybrids research is conducted under tough conditions to allow the identification of hybrids that can tolerate the stresses that are typical in your fields. In 2019 we have 5 main corn research sites involving approximately 85 acres and 1800 hybrids. Over half our acres involve 8-row plots with the middle 4-rows harvested for yield, to minimize inter-plot competition and maximize accuracy. We have a corn-on-corn site and we have soils ranging from sandy to tight black soil. Three sites were sprayed with a fungicide. We have a study to confirm the yield advantage of our Vertex corn inoculant. Vertex™ is part of our Shieldcoat™ seed treatment for corn hybrids we are selling this year, Vertex contains a bacteria that fixes N from the atmosphere and a P solubilizing bacteria. Our research allows us to understand hybrids the hybrids we recommend for your farm. Our goal is to only add to our portfolio those high-performing and well understood hybrids that are needed to maximize your financial return per corn acre.
