Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

With most of Ontario receiving a lot of rain over the last couple of weeks, many growers are wondering if they should switch to earlier maturity corn hybrids. Pioneer agronomist Morris Sagriff advises growers that there is no need to switch corn hybrids. Not yet and not until mid to late May.
 
“With corn prices approaching $6.00 per bushel, it makes sense to stay with a full-season hybrid for as long as possible,” says Sagriff. “Switching to an early maturity hybrid before that may result in reduced profitability for the grower.”  

Long-term studies by both Pioneer and universities have shown a clear yield and profit advantage for full-season hybrids. The extended 30-day forecast is calling for normal heat and rainfall. Growers should stay with their normal adapted hybrids for a few more weeks.
