Seed

Ag Performance is your source for conventional corn and soybean seed.  We provide you with the best seed to fit your soils and your cashflow for the greatest net return.  Why buy from someone who is just started selling conventional because customers are asking for it?  Ag Performance has been testing conventional hybrids against the more popular hybrids in the market place, for over 11 years.  The results have proven that conventional corn can yield the same or better than GMO seed and it costs just a fraction of the price.

Listen to our radio ad here:

Professor Roger Elmore stated the following at the Iowa State University 2013 Integrated Crop Management Conference:

Transgenic traits are offensive traits.  False.  Transgenic traits are defensive in nature and practice.  To illustrate this, if lines of the same hybrid are identical except one has a transgene for insect tolerance the other line does not, if the insect is not present, the lines will yield the same.  On the other hand, if the insect is present at harmful levels, the one with the transgene will yield more.  Transgenes protect yield, they don’t increase it.
