Fred Smith, Stoney Run Farms – McGaheysville, VA
We have planted Augusta seed corn for over 20 years! What we have found is that Augusta brings a good quality product to our farm year after year! We like the fact that Augusta will continue to promote a good genetic line for a number of years. Most of the competitors don’t have the same variety in a test two years in a row. Sometimes you can’t even get the same variety two years in a row! Augusta 7664 has brought us the milk per acre that we need! We have used A7664 for 4 years with consistently good results. It has extremely good health against grey leaf spot and that is very important to us. Green life for an extended harvest season and more milk per acre are a necessity! We simply cannot risk feeding poor value feed. Augusta brings us that consistency year in and year out.

We have had real good results with the A7664 for silage and milk production for three years! The A7664 is not as tall as some corns, but it really adds up for silage with its extreme leafiness. We have a lot of leaf disease and A7664 is one of the best for staying healthy. We have to have milk per acre and that is why we plant Augusta Seed!

We planted several Augusta hybrids this year and are well pleased with the performance. We also planted a silage test plot with hybrids from six different companies and the Augusta corns had a strong performance. A7664 was #1 for predicted milk per ton of DM.

A7664 made 30 tons per acre this year. This was my third year with Augusta and I have not been disappointed yet. We’ve had exceptionally good yields producing high quality silage.

A7664VT3Pro has looked good all summer. It’s good corn!
Wes Kent – Weyers Cave, VA
I’ve really been impressed with A7664 for two years in a row. We got dry this summer, but A7664 still made a good yield on a tough hillside. Just look at these ears, a nice one on every stalk!
Mike Plaugher, Rockingham Co-Op – Bridgewater, VA
In my opinion, if you don’t have excellent plant health you will not have good grain or quality silage. Augusta 7664, along with A5465 and A5566 are three of the healthiest hybrids available today. The A7664 milks well and is a very consistent performer. It even has excellent standability for grain!
Chris & Joe Wilkins - New Market, VA
We like Augusta hybrids because of their high digestibility for our dairy silage. The A7664 was planted to shell. It has great plant health and good ears. A008 made 28 tons per acre at 30,000 population this year. We planted 5 different Augusta hybrids this year and we’re happy with all of them. We rely on Augusta to bring us good hybrids each year and they have never let us down!
