Wyffels Hybrids rolls out 18 new products for #Plant19


Corn growers from Kentucky to Minnesota will have access to the latest in high-performing genetics in 2019 with a new product roll-out from Wyffels Hybrids. The company rolled out 18 new products, including nine new base genetics, for the 2019 growing season.

“We’ve really been blessed the last few years through our breeding program to release several top-notch leading products and these are just some nice additions. We’ve got in the mix SmartStax, VT Double Pro, and non-GMO,” said Adam Ploog, Western Business Manager, Wyffels Hybrids. “We are really excited about the packages we can build for our customers and what that means moving forward.”

Ploog said while non-GMO is a very small part of Wyffels Hybrids’ business, the company hopes this new line-up of products will provide growers several options to choose from.

“We are seeing a real stark contrast in the shift in traits and it changes by geography. We are seeing growers move more away from SmartStax into Double Pro and non-GMO,” Ploog said. “It’s not a huge part of our business at this point — but we really want to give growers options. There’s definitely guys looking for alternatives as far as price to work into different peoples’ budgets and if non-GMO is something that guys are comfortable with, we certainly want to offer those options.”
