Locally Proven

How do we recommend locally proven products for your farm?

Three ways:

1. Legend Elite Advancement Project (L.E.A.P.)
2. Knowledge Plots
3. On-Farm Trials


Legend Elite Advancement Project (L.E.A.P.):

Legend Elite Advancement Project (L.E.A.P.) is our proprietary, in-house research program. It validates data on hybrid genetic performance over time and agronomic placement. Our L.E.A.P. plots are used for product evaluation, selection, and positioning on the right soil type and in the right geography to consistently deliver high value products to growers.

Let's take a look at the numbers.

89,974: The number of replicated corn trials our L.E.A.P. research team has conducted since 2014.

78: Locations across seven states where our research trials were conducted.

19: An average of 19 new hybrids per year made it into our elite lineup from the rigorous testing of Legend Seed’s L.E.A.P. program and our genetic providers.

3: Number of years a new hybrid is generally tested before it debuts in our elite corn lineup, giving us a tremendous amount of insight into a hybrid before it ever becomes a product.

1: Number of regional, independent seed companies that can offer this scale of localized, replicated corn research to bring the best products to your acres.

Knowledge Plots™:

Legend Seeds’ Knowledge Plots™ are our educational plots designed to showcase our products, new technologies, seed treatments, and agronomic practices. These plots allow growers to have a local, hands-on experience with products and see various production practices. Step into the know, talk to your local Legend Seeds dealer or representative today about attending a Knowledge Plot event near you or scheduling a private tour.

On-Farm Trials:

Like most seed companies, we’ve been conducting on-farm trials since day one. It’s the foundation of getting-to-know how a product performs in your backyard. Visit our Plot Data page to see how our products perform in your area.
