I switched to Peterson corn a few years ago and I couldn’t believe the performance I had been missing out on. Last year I started using Peterson soybeans and was even more surprised by the yield bump on my farm. My Peterson rep, Kyle Kremer, goes above and beyond my expectations of just a seed salesman. He’s there with me throughout the year to help with seed choice and placement and through the growing season as well. I highly recommend PFS.
