Our Seed Corn Offerings:
Pilgrim Brand seed corn is Elk Mound Seed's line of transgenic hybrids. We our license with Agrisure Traits, we can offer the most complete and competitive traits the market has to offer. Paired with industry-leading genetics and the best traits in the marketplace, Elk Mound Seed's Pilgrim brand brings tremendous value to our customers.
Elk Mound Seed has a long history of maintaining a full lineup of conventional hybrids. With our diverse selection of leading genetics, our conventional hybrids bring a lot to the table for our growers. Many of these hybrids share genetics with our Pilgrim products, so the yield potential is there, there's just more management involved. With the increasing demand for non-GMO products, Elk Mound Seed has begun testing for adventitious presence of GMO events. These results can be made available upon request.
Elk Mound Seed strives to offer a diverse selection of quality, open-pollinated seed corn. Open-pollinated varieties are unique because they are not hybrids. They are a product of years and years of field-selected qualities. Qualities desired are yield, stalk quality, root strength and plant height. As long as you do not share the pollen between different varieties within the same species, the corn seed will remain true-to-type every season. Keep in mind, corn pollen can travel 600 feet or more!
Every year, Elk Mound Seed carries a few tried and true certified organic seed corn varities. These varieties will typically range between 85-95 day, have great agronomic, and will have the plant height for corn silage or grain.
