Oct. 1, 2018 – With harvest 2018 in full swing, Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio area farmers are turning their focus to 2019 preparations. They’ll have a new option to consider as they think ahead to planting: Stewart Seeds FortiField corn products, featuring enhanced agronomic characteristics plus improved disease protection.
Using superior genetics through enhanced breeding technologies, Stewart Seeds FortiField products have been carefully developed and locally tested to provide high-performing agronomic advantages throughout the growing season from emergence through harvest.

In addition, Stewart Seeds FortiField products defend against local diseases including Gray Leaf Spot, Northern Corn Leaf Blight and Anthracnose Stalk Rot.
“The Stewart Seeds FortiField package of unique agronomic characteristics and comprehensive protection from common and costly diseases are designed to give the Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio area farmers peace of mind, from emergence through harvest,” says Andy Ackley, corn product manager. “These new products have been hand-selected by your local technical agronomists and are designed to perform in the Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio area.”
