Performance Trials

Our priority at Spectrum is to provide you with hybrid data customized for your area, and your operation.  When positioned correctly, our hybrid offerings will help you achieve more profitability and support sustainability through more integrated crop management.

We encourage you to make an informed seed decision.  Please take one minute to complete the short form on the Contact Us page, and allow us to develop a multi-location data set specific for your area.  It is helpful, but not necessary, if you provide hybrids you are familiar with in the "Additional Information" section.  We will draw from third party and internal data generated throughout the Corn Belt, ranging from 80 days to 115 days.  Head-to-head results will be returned quickly, and shown in a way similar to the comparisons below.

Below is a sampling of our performance compared to many popular traited hybrids offered by other national brands.
