How does Corteva Fields Corn VRS Tool Work?
The VRS tool generates estimated economic optimum seeding rates for any corn hybrid. Users can customize based upon the customer goals and local performance.
For Corteva products, including Pioneer® brand products, default population curves are based on data from dedicated Corteva research population trials. Annually, we update this data based upon the latest cumulative research for each hybrid platform.
Corn yield response to population and optimum economic seeding rate by location yield level (7-yr average of all hybrids tested).
NOTE: Averaged across all hybrids tested. Economic optimums based on a corn grain price of $3.50/bu and a seed cost of $3.00 per 1,000 seeds; assumes 5% overplant to achieve target population.
