Advanta Delivers New Phoenix Corn Hybrids for 2016

For the 2016 growing season, Advanta Seeds adds eight new products, including six new base genetics to the Phoenix corn hybrid lineup.
The new products include traits such as Agrisure Artesian, Agrisure Duracade and Agrisure Viptera to optimize water, control insects and provide weed control.
“We’re committed to providing our growers with the right combination of genetics and traits to provide solutions to their farm’s needs,” says Brad Holzworth, Advanta Seeds director of marketing. “These new hybrids build on our portfolio of elite genetics specially selected for Western corn growers.”
