The success of Wyffels Hybrids has been demonstrated in how many more farmers are using the Illinois-based seed company and how rapidly it is expanding. “As we’ve moved forward, we’re kind of calling this year a revolution. We’re expanding into western Iowa with more focus,” Bill Backhaus the new Region Manager with Wyffels in Southwest Iowa told Chuck during the recent Wyffels Hybrids Corn Strategies event at the Harmon Farm in Vincent, Iowa. “We’re really excited and working hard to do what we can to take care of the customers!”
Backhaus said they have several numbers specially designed for his part of the state. In Southwest Iowa, he said closer to the Missouri River crops are doing pretty good, especially considering the flooded conditions of a year ago. But the further east you go, the more it is apparent that a good rain is desperately needed.
