JEFFERSONVILLE, Ohio — Farmers are invited to tell Seed Genetics Direct what seed to test against to ensure research data provides the comparisons all farmers want! Farmers do not need to be a SGD customer to supply a corn or soybean competitive check.
Farmers who wish to participate should send their name, contact info and 10 pounds of seed (with tags) to Seed Genetics Direct at 9983 Jeffersonville-West Lancaster Road, Jeffersonville, Ohio, 43128. Nominations must be received by Feb. 20. SGD has 19 research locations throughout Ohio and Indiana: https://www.seedgeneticsdirect.com/research.
Questions should be directed to Chris Jeffries, CCA, president, at 740-505-0073 or email@example.com.
SGD customers may also manage STEPP (Seed Testing Evaluation Plot Program) plots with SGD. An on-farm customer testing program, STEPP is an important tool in SGD’s research program and offers additional data points in more locations to provide a broader perspective on current and new hybrids and varieties. Customers interested in managing a STEPP plot should contact Todd Jeffries, vice president, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 812-212-0200.
While corn and soybean competitive checks are best suited for Ohio and Indiana farmers given their proximity to SDG research locations, managing or hosting a STEPP plot is on a customer’s farm so open to customers throughout the SDG service area: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, New York, Ohio and Tennessee. Customer-hosted STEPP plots in 2020 can be seen here: https://www.seedgeneticsdirect.com/2020-data
