Short stature corn is a big topic at the Iowa Ag Expo in Des Moines.
David Thompson with Stine Seed says the Iowa-based company has been working on short-stature, or high-density corn for more than a decade.
“And lately it has gotten a lot of attention, other companies getting on board (now). And we are really really happy about that because we really believe it’s the right thing for growers.”
Speaking to Brownfield at the Iowa Ag Expo Tuesday, he said short corn lends itself to better standability and high plant populations.
