Yet more evidence has emerged debunking the lie that we need GM to increase yields and feed the world.
University corn trial results suggest non-GMO hybrid performance is competitive With GMO counterparts
Non-GMO hybrids are a proven alternative for corn farmers, attesting that consumer food prices don't have to rise due to yield differences
Spectrum Seed, 20 Nov 2013
Corn hybrid trials in Illinois have been harvested, and results are showing Non-GMO corn hybrids performing as well or better than GMO corn hybrids.
Spectrum Premium Non-GMO hybrids, used in the testing, produced 3 to 10 more bushels per acre when compared to nationally known GMO corn hybrids. Trial details: http://bit.ly/1baSkPt
These regional data summaries are evidence that farmers now have the opportunity to lower input costs and effectively increase profitability with the use of Non-GMO corn hybrids.
"In addition to competitive yield performance, our aim is to exceed seed purity demands from grain producers as well as grain users across the country who are trying to reach a fast growing consumer market for food products derived from Non-GMO sources," says company Sales Manager Roger Rudolph.
Spectrum Premium Non-GMO™ is an independent brand of genetically improved corn seed sold in 38 states. The company is based in Linden, Indiana.
