Let your seed rep do the walking

With corn prices down, Pioneer Hi-Bred has come up with an innovative database to help you get the greatest return per acre. Now you can easily find out what type of grain the grain handlers, elevators and processors in your area are buying, before you plant.

By contacting your seed representative (the database is only accessible through a representative), you can evaluate the markets within your local geography before deciding what to plant and then, eventually, find out who wants it. You can search by grain type, distance, hybrid number or a combination of these factors. You get a listing of all the companies that match your criteria and each company's phone number, location, grain specs (high-oil, white, waxy or yellow food grade), delivery information and pricing.
