It all starts with plant breeding. Germplasm is the building block for better products. When beginning the breeding process, we start with a larger genetic pool of possible products, narrow them down in less time and test more high-potential top performers in fields like yours.
In this phase, we begin selecting the products to undergo local testing. We use local breeding and technology development plots to understand early product potential and determine which products perform best under differing agronomic conditions.
With assistance from our Jung Seed Genetics technical agronomists, we select a handful of products to test in our trials. Before a product is brought to market, we test and monitor it across hundreds of field scenarios in your local area.
Adding to the Jung Seed Genetics™ Product Lineup
After local testing, our technical agronomists select the products that performed the best across the area we serve. These products are introduced each year into our product lineup.
I've been using Jung Seed Genetics™ HDS® products for 13 years. I see an average of 33 tons per acre, but we've reached as high as 40 tons plus. The digestibility of the feed is exceptional. The cows eat the cobs and all. The seed quality and germination provide peace of mind, and the low populations help boost profitability for the farm. Our milk production has increased every year. With the use of HDS, our herd's health has improved and we see a fuel savings because the low lignin stalks make it easy to chop.
