Farmer-focused research and development drives Golden Harvest® corn seed offerings

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., USA, Aug. 31, 2021 – Golden Harvest announced today the addition of 19 new corn hybrids to its broadly adapted, game-changing corn portfolio. With corn harvest preparations just around the corner, farmers already have their eyes on the 2022 growing season and what’s needed for maximum yield potential in their fields.

New corn hybrids feature Agrisure and Enogen traits

Backed by the speed, power and precision of Syngenta Seeds research and development, the 19 new Golden Harvest corn hybrids range in relative maturity from 90 to 117 days and include:
  • Four hybrids with Agrisure Artesian® technology, built for top-end yield potential and season-long water optimization.
  • Six hybrids with the Agrisure Viptera® trait, the most comprehensive above-ground insect control and the only effective western bean cutworm control trait.
  • 12 hybrids with the Agrisure Duracade® trait for above- and below-ground insect protection and the best-in-class corn rootworm control.
  • 18 hybrids available as E-Z Refuge® seed blend products, providing a convenient, in-bag seed blend.
In select geographies, Golden Harvest will offer five new Enogen® corn hybrids for 2022. In the ethanol market, Enogen corn for fuel enhances the ethanol production process by improving process efficiency, while Enogen corn for feed hybrids help deliver more available energy when incorporated into dairy or beef cattle rations.

“By listening to farmers first and prioritizing research and development, we’re able to offer corn hybrids that surpass the status quo and make maximum yield potential a reality,” said Andy Ackley, Golden Harvest corn product manager. “With exclusive technology, superior traits, strong genetics and unmatched service, we are changing the game of corn production.”

Proven performers in national corn hybrid trials

The 19 new corn hybrids join a broadly adapted Golden Harvest corn portfolio with proven performers based on 2020 national trial data1. For example:
  • Golden Harvest corn G80Q01-3220 E-Z Refuge brand outyielded all Pioneer® products tested in multiple national trials by 6.5 bu/A.
  • Golden Harvest corn G91V51 brand outyielded all Pioneer products tested in multiple national trials by 4.6 bu/A.
  • Golden Harvest corn G02K39-5122 E-Z Refuge brand outyielded all Channel® products tested in multiple national trials by 3.1 bu/A.
“By offering a mix of proven performers and new hybrids, we’re empowering farmers with a broad choice of solutions to maximize yield potential on their operations,” Ackley said. “Because these hybrids are products of Syngenta Seeds research and development, farmers can trust that the 2022 corn portfolio will deliver outstanding agronomics and strong genetics in addition to fitting a wide variety of acres.”

The Golden Harvest portfolio is available from Golden Harvest Seed Advisors, who combine high-yielding seed options with local agronomic knowledge and deliver a year-round, 365-day service commitment to doing whatever it takes to yield results for farmers.
