Randy Dowdy is a first generation farmer from Valdosta, Georgia. He operates a 1,700-acre corn, soybean and peanuts farm. Randy set the world corn yield record in 2014 with a yield of 503 BPA. In 2016, he set the world record in soybeans at 171 BPA and reached a personal best corn haul on his farm of 521 BPA. Randy Dowdy’s production strategies focus on maximizing yields by minimizing stress that plants experience throughout the growing season. Randy’s forward thinking approach to crop production challenges traditionally accepted practices and focuses on extracting as much yield as possible from each seed planted.
Dan Luepkes, a 5th-generation Illinois farmer and respected AgriGold Yield Master, has placed first in the Illinois NCGA Yield Contest since 2016. His 327.5 BPA with our A6499 hybrid in 2017 is his biggest contest title yield to date. Since adding drip irrigation on his farm five years ago, Dan has been expanding and experimenting with drip irrigation combined with new biological and microbial practices to continue to push production. In 2018, Dan took home a 1st place state title in the no-till/strip-till irrigated class with a 324.3 yield and 2nd place in the irrigated class with a 296.7 yield.
