CROSWELL, MICHIGAN – NuTech Seed corn grower Eric West earned a second-place finish in the National Corn Growers Association National Corn Yield Contest for his 2017 harvest.
West entered the No-Till/Strip-Till Non-Irrigated State competition, where he placed second in the state of Michigan. West recorded a yield of 272.9674 with NuTech Seed 5L-601™. West was outyielded by less than one bushel by the state champion.
West raises corn in the Croswell, Mich., area and has grown NuTech Seed corn for seven years. He purchases his NuTech Seed hybrid corn products from his brother Neal, a NuTech Seed dealer for the past three years. The Wests are supported by District Sales Manager Kevin Doneth, of Durand, Mich.

2017 Corn Performance & new products for 2018

Each year growers are presented with a new set of unique challenges that can vary from weather events to insect pressure. It’s a lot to keep up with and why growers need to work as hard as they do. NuTech Seed has been working just as hard to identify new elite hybrids that can help growers achieve the most yield out of every field. As part of the expanded lineup for 2018, NuTech Seed has launched the addition of 10 new genetic families, ranging from 85 to 119 relative maturities.

New product highlights include:

  • Our first ever Optimum® Leptra® products to help provide a superior level of efficacy against ear-feeding pest
  • A robust set of new yield leading genetics that have been thoroughly tested across a wide range of geographies and growing conditions
  • Expanded genetic platforms that will increase our conventional offerings

As part of our development process, NuTech Seed conducts intensive testing of our products both internally and externally to accurately validate the right fit for these new products. This class of newly advanced products continues those efforts and maximizes our diversity and helps drive our performance year after year.

In the 2017 F.I.R.S.T trials, 17 different NuTech Seed hybrids took the overall highest yield designation in 49 different trials. More importantly, NuTech Seed hybrids achieved 227 ‘Top 5’ finishes and 432 ‘Top 10’ finishes respectively.

These results are simply amazing and 2017 is the 2nd best overall performance that we have ever experienced in these trials. Most companies would love to have just one year of record breaking performance, but we have been doing it for the last four!

It is GREAT to be us!

Thanks to all of your efforts, NuTech Seed is enjoying another year of outstanding sales and business performance. More growers than ever are planting our products this spring and seeing our top performing corn products and soybeans with the LibertyLink® gene. It is truly ‘Great to be Us’ and a great time to be part of the NuTech Seed team!

I often get asked the question: "How are you doing it?"  To me, the answer is quite simple: the answer is some of the basic attributes of a healthy and growing seed company, even in these challenging times in agriculture.

I had the opportunity to review some market research recently regarding growers' purchasing decisions. The respondents' answers were very insightful and they answer the 

question about our recent success at NuTech Seed. The question that caught my eye was around the factors that were most important for choosing a seed brand. Product performance, yield and dealer relationship were the top three responses, accounting for more than 85% of the most mentioned factors. Other agronomic characteristics, trait package, price and other factors were far less important and almost inconsequential in the decision. Those three factors are all key to NuTech Seed’s recent success.

Our products, from about any performance measurement, are showing up time and time again and our solution-based approach with the right traits for individual growers are delivering choice and tremendous value. This performance and flexibility is being noticed as we continue to receive unsolicited calls and inquiries asking to try our products or to join our team. And you, our sales teams, continue to provide sound advice regarding product placement along with outstanding and dependable service. Growers are seeing the value and they are rewarding us with their purchase decisions.

At NuTech Seed, we truly do ‘Lead with Seed’ and we are passionate about your success. I would just like to say thank you for putting your trust in NuTech Seed products and people once again this year and best wishes for another great crop.

Improve NuTech Seed's brand awareness with social media

Social media is constantly changing. Every social site has its own algorithm to determine how users view content and that algorithm is regularly adjusted to keep everyone, especially marketers, on their toes.

Gone are the days when the Facebook News Feed is a timeline of content, listed in the order each piece was created. Now the posts you see in your News Feed are based on your browsing patterns. 

Have you ever wondered why you don’t see every piece of content that NuTech Seed posts on Facebook? Just “liking” NuTech Seed’s Facebook page doesn’t guarantee you’ll see anything we post. You have two options: FOLLOW the page, so you get a notification every time we post, or INTERACT with our posts (like, comment, and share). The more you interact with a page and its posts, the more content you will see from that page in your News Feed.

With every algorithm update that Facebook makes, companies are seeing constant decline in followers, reach, impressions, website clicks, and more. Instagram operates the same way. Twitter still follows the “timeline” approach, for the most part, but if you haven’t logged on in a few days, you’ll see a section of tweets labeled “Here’s what you may have missed…”

So here is my request, if you spend time on social media, make sure you are interacting with NuTech Seed’s posts. Like, comment, and share – it’s a quick and effective way to help our marketing efforts and continue spreading our brand across the country.
