Seed production harvest is complete, and we couldn’t have asked for better conditions. The NWG agronomy team Daniel Willis, Jack Mangels, and Rich Fletcher swathed and combined our NWG AMPLIFY™ hybrid seed production field, the CSU ARDEC variety trial plots, and our NWG 4113 seed production field. Seed harvest is a fine art of achieving optimum seed maturity and ease of threshing, while minimizing shatter. Swathing helps to dry down material before harvest -improving threshing and maximizing seed quality. Once the seed has dried down to less than 20% moisture, we combine the windrows. Thanks to good breeding for stalk diameter and uniformity these stands cut very well.
