It all starts with plant breeding. Germplasm is the building block for better products. When beginning the breeding process, we start with a larger genetic pool of possible products, narrow them down in less time and test more high-potential top performers in fields like yours.
In this phase, we begin selecting the products to undergo local testing. We use local breeding and technology development plots to understand early product potential and determine which products perform best under differing agronomic conditions.
With assistance from our Lewis Hybrids technical agronomists, we select a handful of products to test in Lewis Hybrids trials. Before a product is brought to market, we test and monitor it across hundreds of field scenarios in your local area.
Adding to the Lewis Hybrids™ Product Lineup
After local testing, our technical agronomists select the products that performed the best across the area we serve. These products are introduced each year into our lineup.
I would put Lewis Hybrids™ products up against any of the competition. I’ve had good success with both Lewis Hybrids corn and soybean products, and I have enjoyed and appreciated the information provided in the Series for Success and profit-planning workshops.
