From a technology perspective, without a Know2Grow™ Research Program, the value of variable rate application, field mapping, yield monitoring, auto-steering and application timing are all greatly diminished if you do not make the right choice first. Rely on the Ohlde Seed Know2Grow™ Program to select a locally researched seed, engineered to thrive in your specific field and soil conditions.
As a stark comparison, many of our competitors are still using “strip trials”, with only a select few hybrids, over multiple acres in the same field. We believe that a true research program takes a much deeper level of commitment to consistently provide accurate data.
With the Know2Grow™ Research Program, we are condensing over 88 hybrids in 4 row plots within 1 acre.
What does this mean? Throughout every field there is variability that can and will affect yield in one way or another. With Know2Grow™, we have near zero variability throughout the plot. The program also allows us to replicate all our plots TWICE, which gives us 2 data points in 1 plot. That is over 180 hybrids in 2 acres. Know2Grow™ Research Program provides data the farmer can trust.
Each and every corn hybrid and soybean variety in Ohlde Seed Farms product line-up is thoroughly evaluated in our Know2Grow™ Research Program. This evaluation consists of strategically located local testing sites throughout our territory that are in close proximity to your operation. Key program benefits include:
