With today's resistant weed issue, planting Peterson's LibertyLink beans is a no-brainer with their years of experience and testing, giving me the best variety selection for the highest yield possible on my ground. Their corn has been great as well. I have done split planter comparisons against the "big" company's hybrids and the Peterson corn has been the best yield the last 3 years. I like that Peterson Farms Seed is a regional company focusing on our area's needs, with great service and great people to work with.
