What do we mean by the term, “Stacked Corn?”
This term is used to describe seed products with more than one technology trait. A single trait might be Glyphosate or YieldGard Corn Borer or possibly YieldGard Rootworm. When we offer two or more of these traits together in a single hybrid, this is what is called a stacked hybrid.
Kussmaul Seeds is offering several stacked hybrids for the 2013 growing season. These include hybrids stacked with Glyphosate and Corn Borer, and hybrids that are triple-stacked with Glyphosate, Corn Borer and Rootworm. Plus hybrids that have Glyphosate and Glufosinate tolerance as well as corn borer and rootworm protection.
The double-, triple- and quad-stacked corn hybrids available from Kussmaul Seeds offer more value, and more profit to you, our customers.

One bushel of corn weighs about 56 pounds. That means U. S. farmers produce and average of more
than 9,000 pounds of corn per year.
The U.S. produces about 40 percent of the world's corn – using only 20 percent of the total area
harvested in the world.
From one bushel of corn you can make… 32 pounds of starch, OR 33 pounds of sweetener, OR 2.8
gallons of ethanol fuel AND 11.4 pounds of gluten feed AND 3 pounds of gluten meal AND 1.6
pounds of corn oil.
