Results from the 2017 Yield Monitor Challenge – 6247

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s Yield Monitor Challenge. Over the next couple of weeks we will be sharing some of the results we received from our customers and harvest data from this year’s test plots.


It’s no surprise we received several entries from customers harvesting Prairie Brand’s 6247SXRA and PWRA. This hybrid is known for it’s consistent top-end yield performance!
