Best Seed Corn Quality at Shelton, NE, Quality Goes To Higher Levels
 With Nutrient Packing, Binary Banding and TAPPKTS with Zinc

Nutrient Packing of Hybrid Corn Seed. Balanced nutrients allow extra plant vigor from parents to the next generation.


From Spillman Farm and the Gaines semi dwarf Wheat Breeders that increased winter wheat yields 150% to 200% using seed quality and nutrient packing of seed.

From Pullman, Washington, You were considered lucky to know this famous green revolution breeder of WSU.  Born and raised in Pilger, Ne.


Norman Borlaug’s coach Vogel at Spillman Farm, was able to help Borlaug drive the “Green Revolution” from Pullman, Washington.

Orville Vogel was born at Pilger, NE on the Elkhorn River in 1907, Norman Borlaug was born not too far away, 264 miles east in Cresco, Iowa in 1914.

Both men knew about the failures of the Dust Bowl, worked in Idaho and Washington State and were driven to make a better life for billions of people.

Norman Borlaug was exposed to rigorous life in the Idaho wilderness of the Salmon River.

Borlaug was not considered a good candidate for college and had to start in a small two year college to get his roots down.


It is never how you start that counts…it is the finish that is important.

Young men want to do better as 1960 breeders go for better plants and new plants to stop the Dust Bowl.

Dr. Walter McClure of Oklahoma State bred Milo at the same 1960’s period.

McClure took an African Sorghum Plant and made it common on 8 million acres with low cost seed for the Great Plains desert climate.

From Dr. Orville Vogel’s on site classes you can learn how seed quality is improved in the Washington State Crop Improvement Association.

Foundation Seed Program - Washington Crop


Highest quality seed or close to the parents as registered and certified seed, (improved plant vigor with special attention to the parents) was produced on nutrient rich soils of the potato rotation resulting in high test weight and balanced nutrients in the seed with little seed born virus potential.


  • Some soft white winter Registered and Certified seeds were delivered at 8,000 seeds per pound, nutrient packed, plump, and high test weight, good protein, nutrient packed and from the nutrient rich potato rotation soils of the Columbia Basin.
