INDEX

The focus of our longterm comprehensive product development & evaluation program is to bring the best products to the NORTHEAST & MID-ATLANTIC market with the most regional supporting John Bozeman, Chief Operating Officer information we have. Whether it’s grain or silage, full trait, specific trait, conventional, organic, or NON GMO - chances are we have a product and supporting information to meet the needs of each acre you grow. In today’s tight farm economy the key to success is choosing the right management tools. Every acre counts and each seed selection is an important decision. When you are up against regional soil productivity differences, elevation changes, changing tillage/ herbicide systems, and necessary management choices; not every product fits every acre. Grain, silage, specialty - choosing seed carefully can pay significant year end dividends.

Maturity 105/104 Days RM NY/CCB

Considering

SmartStax® hybrid with maximum insect protection package for high value grain acres. Proven performer over wide areas east of the Mississippi river. Good agronomics including strong roots. Flowers early for maturity enabling outstanding northern fit. Cornerstone grain hybrid where 105RM hybrids are grown. • PEST TOLERANCE: Excellent • SHELLING EASE: Excellent • EAR PICKING: Excellent • LIMITATIONS: Can lose staygreen in southern environments late in harvest season - may affect field appearance, but not yield or standability. • MANAGEMENT: SmartStax® recommended for any position in the corn rotation. Nice hybrid where rootworm is a concern.

New Hybrids in Bold. Rating scale:1 = Best, tallest - 9 = Inadequate, shortest - 4 = midscale, average within maturity band. MATURITY (RM): Seedway rates hybrids in “days relative maturity.” This system compares hybrids accurately within the Seedway lineup across the northern and southern zones respectively. These values should not be interpreted strictly as calendar days since corn varies growth according to environmental conditions independent of the calendar. Northern zone values fit the Northeast and upper Midwest well. The CCB rating better describes maturity in the central corn belt, southward. Variety

Plain - Conventional varieties planned to meet Non-GMO standards, pending lot testing

Non GMO Seed Corn is a wind cross pollinated crop which requires careful selection of low or no GMO content planting stock if a Non-GMO crop is desired. Zero GMO tolerance in planting stock and farm production is not consistently achievable in practice. Testing of planting stock is necessary to verify and qualify a product for Non-GMO market use considering the GMO level of tolerance a grower needs to achieve at market.

17

Non GMO Farm Management Additional farm management is necessary to maintain low or no GMO level even with Non-GMO verified seed. This is critical. Neighbor traited pollen can blow into planned Non-GMO production at pollination. Proper grain handling is also essential to maintain purity. Seedway supplies grower management “best practices” for Non-GMO production with each Non-GMO seed order. Information also available separately by request.
