WITH POLLINATION, TIMING IS EVERYTHING
Approximately 5-10% of global hybrid seed corn yield is lost to bad pollination or poor “nick”. Under normal conditions, pollen is shed within a day or two after silk emergence, allowing for full fertilization of the husk. However, when the male’s optimum pollen release date is not synced with female’s optimum silk receptivity date, kernel formation is sacrificed. PowerPollen technology enables seed producers to apply preserved pollen in perfect timing with the female’s optimum receptivity.
