Research and Testing
The Eastern Corn Belt has unique soils. Customers have unique needs. At SGD, we work hard to offer farmers the right hybrids and varieties. Our aggressive testing program allows us to assess performance in 22 research locations with 50 corn tests and 45 soybean yield tests for a total of more than 40,000 yield plots across Indiana and Ohio. SGD also works with a minimum of six major research foundation genetic suppliers sharing yield and agronomic data across the Corn Belt. This data allows us to objectively evaluate seed performance prior to making production and sales decisions. These tools also allow customers to meet their yield and income goals, and it's all backed with a 100% replant guarantee.
