I got this really nice text from a friend of mine, Robert F. Naylor from NC. Thanks for the kind words and feedback.
Thanks for putting me on the Agri-Gold varieties 6659 and 6499 because both did really well for us. Both hybrids had good uniform emergence and late season stay green. I have got a 50 acre farm, 30 acres pretty good soil and 20 acres of Sandy land. On the sandy land, I usually swap this to a friend of mine for sweet potatoes. You told me the 6499 did well on the light land for you, so I tried it. I was harvesting the good land with a well known competitors variety and the yield monitor was staying around 150bu and I was pleased because we were hot and dry. Competitor's corn was 10 feet tall and I could see the shorter 6499 coming up and I was dreading getting in to it. The corn was 6 to 7 foot tall but the yield monitor held 160 to 245bu and I couldn't believe it. My neighbor came along, jumped in the combine, and he knew this soil and the weather we had this year and he couldn't believe it either. It proved itself this year. Thank the Lord for a good crop and Thank You for being a great teacher, mentor and true friend for the last 3 years. ... See MoreSee Less
Hopefully, rain from a possible tropical storm/hurricane this week will not take away some really good yields on Soybeans. We started harvesting some 4.7 USG74A74 today. Woohoo!!!!!!!!' They're excellent!!!! So proud right now and thankful. Thanks again Dan Poston, Brandt, Genesis Ag, Southeastern Ag Lab, Southern States, DuPont, BASF, David Hula @ Renwood Farms, Irrigation team at Nashville Tractor and USG for the help in our efforts to accomplish capturing some really good soybean yields. Announcement coming soon on final outcome and hopefully remaining soybeans will be as good or better. One contest entry is in the books. Most importantly, thank you Lord for all your blessings. I'm also blessed to have support from a loving and prayerful family, Bridget, and Loren. I Thessalonians 5:18 ... See MoreSee Less
