Best of the Best
By Jan Motz | August 17, 2022
Each year, DF Seeds best lines are tested against the best in the industry to show we are Michigan Proven. This year DF Seeds has three Best of the Best plots. At each location, we will be testing our full lineup of soybean varieties, including 2 new conventional and 1 new Enlist E3® variety, and corn hybrids, including our 17 new hybrids. Ration Choice® corn hybrids will be chopped and tested for silage quality at each location.
DF Seeds is hosting plot tours at each of these locations, so you can choose the location that is closest to your farm. Below is a description of what you will see at each site.
