The DuPont Pioneer tent is always a busy place at Husker Harvest Days. This year was no exception, as dozens of Pioneer experts were on hand to visit with farmers and answer their questions about the latest seed innovations.
As you might expect, there was plenty of interest in AQUAmax, Pioneer’s line of drought tolerant corn hybrids. Greg Carpenter, a Pioneer account manager from southeast Nebraska, visited with us about the performance of the AQUAmax hybrids in his area this year.
For a little more detail on how AQUAmax drought tolerance works, we turned to Pioneer corn research director Joe Keaschall.
Tim Lewandowski, a Pioneer account manager in central Nebraska, talked about the harvest outlook and how Pioneer’s Optimum AcreMax insect protection system is working in his area.
