• Artesian corn hybrids contain multiple genes for season-long drought protection, responding to water stress with multiple modes of action—at virtually any stage of growth.

• Artesian hybrids carry genetics that help you bring your A game, delivering top-end yields whether the crop receives enough water or not.

• Agrisure Artesian corn hybrids are available in combination with best-in-class insect control and herbicide-tolerance traits—for the best hybrids science can offer.

Artesian Performance

Agrisure Artesian hybrids consistently match or exceed the yields of comparable hybrids and can help you achieve improved yield consistency on virtually any corn acre.

• In optimal growing conditions or under moderate drought stress, Artesian hybrids matched or exceeded the yield of comparable hybrids.

• In severe and extreme drought conditions, Artesian corn hybrids produced 13.7% higher yields than the plot average.

• In cases of extreme drought stress, Artesian corn hybrids produced 40.0% higher yields compared to the plot average.

Highly productive soils

In environments where growing conditions are optimal yet the possibility of variable rainfall exists, Artesian hybrids are built for improving yield.

Variable soils

In environments with variability in soil water-holding capacity and/or infiltration rate, Artesian hybrids are built to handle in-field variation.

High-yield irrigated and limited irrigation corn

In environments where water is a critical, limited and expensive input, Artesian hybrids can help improve water use flexibility.

Dryland corn

In environments where variable rainfall limits yields every year, Artesian drought-tolerant corn hybrids can help increase yield potential.

“I’ve planted Artesian corn hybrids on my irrigated acres and my dryland acres and have seen these hybrids use water better than other hybrids. Artesian hybrids keep their color better during the hot, dry weather and produce ears that fill out well.”

“For me, planting Artesian corn hybrids is like having another insurance policy, plus the ability to yield. Artesian hybrids don’t limit your yield. They give you that safety net. If things turn dry, it’s still going to perform for you.”

“Artesian corn hybrids really hang in there with the best of the best and shine even past those. We are able to see Artesian hybrids stay greener longer and not roll up in the summer heat.”

“Artesian corn hybrids stay green and still look healthy when you have some stressful days with a lot of heat and no rainfall, while other hybrids tend to roll up and look drought-stressed.”

“I was excited to grow Artesian corn hybrids because so many of my soil types do not have good water-holding capacity. The Artesian hybrids look exceptional, and I feel that the benefit of Artesian hybrids will really help me over the years. I would describe Artesian hybrids as dependable. Year in and year out, they are going to perform well for me.”

“Planting Artesian corn hybrids is a game-changer. It protects the plant from moisture stress from the time the seed goes in the ground all the way through harvest. I don’t see this level of season-long protection in competitive products.”

Brent Rogers

“Water is a critical issue in my area. We need to do everything we can to extend the life of the aquifer and still continue to grow good crops. A product like an Artesian corn hybrid, which allows us to grow more corn with less water, is certainly what we need.”
