January 15, 2024
Are you wondering what makes DF Seeds’ products stand out in the bustling agricultural market of Michigan? It’s not just about offering seeds; it’s about delivering Michigan Proven quality with every product. Dive into our rigorous selection process and discover how we ensure only the best reaches your fields.
Rigorous Testing for Michigan Proven Quality
At DF Seeds, our commitment to excellence begins with stringent testing. Our selection process involves multiple layers of evaluation, including:
- MSU White Mold and SDS Screenings: We collaborate with Michigan State University to conduct specialized screenings, ensuring our seeds withstand local challenges.
- MSU Variety Trials: Our seeds must consistently rank in the top third of these trials. This isn’t just a one-time achievement; we look for consistent performance.
The Two-Year Rule: Our Benchmark for Consistency
Why two years? Agriculture is as unpredictable as the weather, and no two years are the same in farming. A variety that excels in consecutive years is not just lucky; it’s proven. This is the cornerstone of our selection philosophy, guaranteeing that our products are not fleeting successes but consistent performers.
Notable Performers in Recent Trials
In our recent trials, several varieties have notably excelled:
- Central Conventional Trial: DF 151 N, DF 204 N, DF 214 N and DF 231 N were bold. DF 204 N was the top yielding variety in the Saginaw location.
