WHAT’S L.E.A.P.? Legend Elite Advancement

Project (L.E.A.P.) is our proprietary, in-house research program. It validates data on hybrid genetic performance over time and agronomic placement. Our L.E.A.P. plots are used for product evaluation, selection, and positioning on the right soil type and in the right geography to consistently deliver high value products to growers. Since 2014, we’ve conducted 85,890 replicated corn trials across 68 locations. As a result of our rigorous testing, we advance only the elite hybrids into our line-up, averaging 19 new products per year out of the thousands we tested. As the weather begins to warm up, planting season has arrived throughout the entire Legend Seeds footprint, also meaning L.E.A.P. preparation and planting is well underway! As part of our added-value approach

toward providing you with agronomic confidence from planting to harvest, our L.E.A.P. locations serve as an additional resource for you to visit, tour, and view how our products and potential future products are performing in your area. In De Smet, the Research Team has prepared for our 2019 L.E.A.P. plots as close to 5,000 packets were filled this spring in preparation for 11 L.E.A.P.


locations across five states. The first plot planted was in Bloomer, Wisconsin the week of May 6, 2019 to kick off a very busy planting season. The Research Team is excited to plant this year’s L.E.A.P. plots and wishes everyone a safe planting season! Continued on page 3
