In August Abbott & Cobb, Inc. held its annual Summer Trials in the great state of Wisconsin. At the trials customers were shown new and innovative commercial releases as well as experimental varieties. Highlighted on the tour were Abbott & Cobb’s newest varieties of SSW® – the 100% natural and patented genetic breakthrough in the industry. SSW®’s dramatically improve the performance of sweet corn seeds under many stress conditions such as, early plantings in colder or wetter soil. Other benefits include earlier stand establishment, stronger root systems, and larger seeds for easier planting.
In addition to the main sweet corn program, there were several other demos including a processor sweet corn demo, featuring robust varieties with great kernel color and high recovery. There were several bean demos with new fresh market and processor type varieties, including medium to large sieve types. Also a must-see pepper trial was featured with new bell and jalapeno varieties with exceptional disease packages, and higher yielding plants.
