The real beauty is how it uses water more effectively.
Developed by Syngenta, the leader in water optimization in corn, Agrisure Artesian™ technology provides growers with a new level of season-long drought protection, allowing them to grow more corn in moisture-stressed environments. Hybrids with Agrisure Artesian technology maximize yield when it rains, and increase yield when it doesn’t, improving the return on a grower’s total crop investment. Agrisure Artesian technology helps to reduce financial, emotional and crop stress during gaps in rainfall.
 

 
 
  • In 2012, more than 1,100 on-farm trials were conducted to prove that hybrids with Agrisure Artesian technology maximize yield when it rains, and increase yield when it doesn't.
  • Under severe and extreme drought conditions, hybrids with Agrisure Artesian technology produced 16.8%, or 10.9 bushels/acre, higher yields compared to the plot average.
  • In cases of extreme drought conditions, hybrids with Agrisure Artesian technology produced yields of 48.4%, or 15.1 bushels/acre, versus the plot average. These hybrids, in some cases, nearly doubled the yield of hybrids without the Agrisure Artesian trait.
  • In good growing conditions or moderate drought stress, hybrids with Agrisure Artesian technology matched or exceeded the yield of comparable hybrids.

The biggest benefit of Agrisure Artesian technology is that it allows you to grow more corn with less water. In my area, the aquifer is running out on us. We are going to be looking at 11 inch restrictions next year. To grow more corn, we need to have better corn and Agrisure Artesian technology will fit the bill for me.

Hybrids with Agrisure Artesian technology have resulted in better water utilization and the ability to stay greener longer. The hybrids handled the hostile climate the best and in a severe drought case. The plant has more stalk and roots allowing it to naturally have better stand and overall health. The biggest benefit of Agrisure Artesian technology is the overall plant health and its ability to optimize those stress conditions whether it is hot or dry or even wet. Agrisure Artesian technology helps to keep the plant on track.

Agrisure Artesian technology has caught a lot of people's eye this year. With the drought, it was the perfect time to bring it to Illinois because you put it alongside the conventional corn that has been working well here. And during the 100 plus degree days we had hybrids with Agrisure Artesian technology that were sitting here with their leaves wide-open, just taking in the sun, while other hybrids were rolling up tight.
