North Carolina Testimonials

Tony James – Augusta Seed Rep – Wallace, NC

“We are trying to celan up from the devastation of Hurricane Florence. It is hard to comprehend even for us as we see it daily. Here are a few bullet points on what we are going through.
Flood event greater than a 500 year flood
Many families displaced from their homes
Our local economy affected with businesses still closed
Power still not restored in areas
Tremendous acreage of soybeans totally destroyed
Many local farmers faced with difficult decisions regarding the future
I will say the outpouring of love and support from churches, ministries and people from all across America has given me renewed confidence in humanity. The love of Christ is being shown as I have never witnessed. Please continue to pray for us and for America!”


Tony James – Augusta Seed Rep, Rose Hill, NC

“Our region has been devastated by the flooding and wind from Hurricane Florence.  I can tell you this, the outpouring of love and people wanting to help to rebuild our community is amazing.  The Christian love and support is alive and well in America.”

David Rockett – East Bend, NC

“I have planted the A8868 for my silage for several years and I have been very pleased.  The corn gets good size and also stands well in case I decide to shell some of it.  This year it averaged 24 tons per acre and I plan to use it again next year!”


Carroll Goodman – Statesville, NC

“I have planted Augusta for years and I like working with a family owned company.  The A7768 has been a great silage corn for our dairy.  It has been as good as any corn we have used for silage!”

“This was my first experience planting Augusta Seed and I was very impressed!  The A7767 was the most uniform corn throughout the field.  Even with adverse growing conditions, it still averaged 190 bushels per acre.  What was so impressive was the fact it out-yielded the competitor corn on the same farm by 60 bushels!”


Glenn Pendleton – Elizabeth City, NC

Reggie Baker – Monroe, NC

“I have used A5658 for several years and it is a hybrid that I can put on my toughest ground.  This year under stress, it was 25 to 30 bushels better than competitor hybrids on similar soil types.  This is the best flex ear corn on the market today.”


Wayne Smitherman – East Bend, NC

“A5664 has unbelievable standability and great yields.”


Harry Spruill – Columbia, NC

“I really like Augusta 5658 (108 RDM) and A4959 (109 RDM).  These are two solid early hybrids for our area.  They have very high yield potential.”


Don Rawls – Watha, NC

“I really like the early dry down of the Augusta 5658.  It was the first corn I harvested and it was dry.  The Augusta 5658 is a shorter plant with low ear placement.  It stood well and had a really strong root system.  Since my Rep advised me it has tremendous flex, I lowered the population and picked 180 bushels per acre on some lighter soils.  I am very pleased!”

Daniel Lackey – Stoney Point, NC

Carroll Goodman – Statesville, NC

“I have been a fan of Augusta Seed for a long time!  I like doing business with a family owned company.  They have always brought me top performing corn hybrids!  This year, A5566 has been our top yielding corn against several of the national competitors!  We will be planting more next year!”


Phillip Cartner & Andy Bowles – Mocksville, NC

“We have increased the amount of Augusta we plant every year based on the performance we have seen.  The Augusta 5566 (116 RDM) has definitely been a corn that has impressed us.  The plant health is great and it performs in good years and bad!  This year we had large acreage that averaged 180 bushels per acre and we will use more next year.”


Curtis Byrum & Matt Floyd – Tyner, NC

“A2847 (97 RDM) yields with the full season corns.”


Charles Kirby - Warsaw, NC

“We like to start harvesting early.  The Augusta 2847 (97 RDM) allows us to do just that.  We have had it several years now and it has never let us down.  It’s healthy, stands well and offers yield just like our full season hybrids.  It was planted on some sandy soil and averaged 180 bushels per acre.”


Reggie Baker – Monroe, NC

“I received a lot of comments all growing season about how good the A2847 looked.  For two years now it has been our best early corn.  I like being able to pick it in August.  This year the Augusta 2847 averaged 175 bushels per acre.  I am very well pleased with this average!”


Justin Price – Wallace, NC

“The Augusta 0720 (111 RDM) has become one of my all time favorite hybrids. It’s healthy, stands well and works great on all soil types. If there is a corn available that I would ever consider planting my entire crop in, it would be Augusta 0720! I’ve harvested quite a bit this year over 175 bushels per acre and it was all planted on very light soil types. It’s a must try for your farm!”


Suzi Peak & Tyler Sholar – Pin Hook, NC

“I couldn’t be more pleased with my A0720!  It has had great plant health and excellent standability all year long.  It averaged 225 bushels per acre on sandy dryland.  I highly recommend this hybrid.  In A0720 we trust!”
