Wyffels Hybrids Releases New Corn Hybrids for 2021 Planting Season

Wyffels Hybrids is excited to offer 12 new hybrids to corn growers in the Central Corn Belt for the 2021 planting season. These hybrids, which have been rigorously tested and vetted by the company’s team of corn breeders, include eight new base genetics from 95 to 115 RM.

“We are excited to introduce another outstanding class of hybrids that bring tremendous yield potential, proven stability and great agronomics,” said Shane Meis, Director of Research at Wyffels Hybrids. “They elevate an already industry- leading lineup to new heights and will play a prominent role in Wyffels’ mission to relentlessly work together to serve corn growers in the pursuit of a more productive and profitable crop.”

Wyffels and its team of seed representatives take great pride in working with their customers to help them find a package of hybrids that fit their specific needs. Corn growers have the ability to choose from a top-performing lineup of Wyffels products with SmartStax® (SS) and VT Double PRO® (VT2P) traits, as well as conventional (CONV) hybrids.

Corn growers should contact their local Wyffels Seed Representative to find out how they can see these hybrids first-hand this growing season.
