Augusta 7767 is by far my best corn! Some areas averaged 225 bushels per acre dry land.

I used the Augusta 7767 upon the recommendation of my Augusta rep. I am glad I did! It was considerably shorter than the competitor I planted it beside and has been the best corn on my farm this year! It averaged 198 dry bushels per acre.

I like Augusta 5658 because it is short with low ear placement and has good standability!  It is a top yielder for us.  Our corn was hurt by excessive water this year but the A5658 still averaged over 160 dry bushels per acre over a couple hundred acres!

We planted the Augusta 5566 this year and this corn definitely has yield!  We had it in a yield comparison with a national competitor. The Augusta 5566 averaged 247 dry bushels per acre and was 6 bushels better than the competitor. This corn also had the best plant health and was the only corn in our Augusta Seed plot with green life in it. It handled the rust we had very well.

I planted the Augusta 5262 for the first time this year. It has been our best corn so far. This corn stood up really well. It had low ear placement, compared to some competitor hybrids we had. The Augusta 5262 averaged 185 bushels per acre and was 20 to 30 bushels per acre better than the competitor planted in the same field.

The Augusta 5262 did real well for me this year.  It went 223 bushels per acre at 23% moisture. This is great considering it was planted on May 6, which is late for us. I will use Augusta 5262 again for sure.

I used the Augusta 2954 for the first time this year and I was thoroughly impressed. It has been averaging between 150 to 175 bushels per acre under stress. I will definitely use more next year.

I like having some early corn in my lineup and the Augusta 2954 has done real well for me. This year I didn't have any that went below 160 bushels per acre average. That is great in my book!

I used the Augusta 2035 (85 RDM) this year to snap for deer corn and I was very impressed. This plant is short with great dry down and beautiful grain quality. This is a great early season corn!

We had the Augusta 5566 in our test plot this year and it proved to be the top yielder! It went 224 bushels per acre! It had the best standability and plant health, considering the disease we had.
