Plot Performance for 2018

Harvest has come to a close (or nearly so) for most of us in eastern South Dakota, and as we approach the holiday season it’s important to look back and give thanks for the things that have gone well in the past year. We have been privileged here at Bauman Agency to have the opportunity to test some of these hybrids ourselves, and to work with several other farmers who were willing to devote some of their precious crop land to testing Pioneer Hybrids both new and old. We’d like to thank each of them for their help!

Of course, sales for next year’s seed is already underway, and knowing what varieties performed well will be essential in helping any operating decide what it will put in the ground next year. We hope you find the details of this year’s plot performance helpful in making these decisions for your farm and your family. As always, if you need help, just give us a call. After all, here at Bauman Agency we see seed from your side of the fence.
