The Mixed Bag of 2015

November 16, 2015
Author Ryan Spurgeon

A wet planting season, issues with nitrogen management, high disease pressure in corn and a warm, rapid dry down this fall — farmers experienced a lot in 2015. Even with all of the challenges Mother Nature dished out, farmers are experiencing higher than expected yield numbers and have finished the season strong. Hoegemeyer also planted five new hybrids this year that performed exceptionally well in competitive trials. This new class of hybrids ranges from 106–114 day maturities and has performed well in moderate to low planting populations, which is noteworthy as farmers look to trim input costs.
