Augusta 0720 was an amazing performer for us in Eastern MD! We were under tremendous dry weather stress and then got rain! The A0720 held on till the rain and performed! Stress tolerance is really important for us here in Eastern MD. This A0720 yielded 240 dry bushels to the acre! Our Augusta early corn A2954 was a real winner here also! For an early corn to be as tough as A2852 under stress is just what we need. It’s been real good here for several years!

I planted some of Augusta’s A0720 this year. It averaged 180 bushels an acre at 16.5%. I am tickled with that

I have used Augusta Seed for many years. Our A0720 yielded 175 bushels per acre this year. We always have stress so we have to have stress tolerant seed!

The plant health in my A0720 was great this year, considering how much disease there was out there. It stood well and put on some decent ears. This is a consistent hybrid.

We have used A0720 as a workhorse for several years. It does well even on tough soil. This year it was one of the top hybrids in our plot at 299! We have had two hybrids hit 400 bushels per acre on our yield monitor and A0720 did it this year! For several years, our favorite hybrid has been and still is, A5457 (107 RDM). It has consistently given us big yields irrigated and drys down really fast! We measured a plot at 276 bushels this year and had field averages that were close to that. We like the fact that we can buy such a strong performing hybrid as a conventional or with technology. It gives us options! The new hybrid that is demanding (from 2 years of our own test) that we take a hard look at it A5262 (112 RDM).

I needed some good Liberty Link options for my farm so I bought A0720. Some of it was pushing 250 bushels per acre!

Augusta 0720 was the best corn on my farm this year! It averaged 233 dry bushels per acre, and that was non irrigated! A0720 also had some really pretty grain!
Jim & Cheryl Evans - Bloxom, VA
A2954 (104 RDM) averaged 150 bushels per acre and A0720 (112 RDM) averaged 170 bushels per acre! I really like Augusta 0720 on my Eastern Virginia soil. It is a consistent performer for our tough conditions. We were dry and the Augusta corn waited on the rain! I am very satisfied with that because our growing conditions were so tough this year.
