Description

Results of 1996 field tests with Maximizer™ hybrid com confirm the results from the previous two years, indicating that these products offer an innovative solution to growers, enabling them to maximize grain yield, test weight, standability, and performance consistency in spite of damage otherwise caused by the European com borer (ECB). Responses from the approximately 9,000 growers who had the opportunity to plant the 135,000 units available in 1996 are overwhelmingly positive. In addition, feedback supporting rapid market growth of this technology is being received from 800-plus on-farm company-sponsored tests, and those from university and USDA researchers. Rapid market growth is expected in 1997.
