Oct. 1, 2018 – With harvest 2018 in full swing, Minnesota farmers are turning their focus to 2019 preparations. They’ll have a new option to consider as they think ahead to planting: Gold Country Seed FortiField corn products, featuring enhanced agronomic characteristics plus improved disease protection.
