GROBO 1923 corn: the characteristics of the first own-brand hybrid that includes innovative genetics
Los Grobo is closing the fiscal year 21/22 with a record of more than 150 million dollars from the sale of supplies.

The first hybrid of Los Grobo Agropecuaria on the market is already entering its third commercial campaign. A variety with innovative genetics, suitable for most productive plantings in the Pampean region -both in early and late sowings- and prepared to reach high yield potentials in suitable environments, as well as in more defensive plantings.

The technical advisor at Semillas de Los Grobo, Guillermo Alonso, commented: “It is a long cycle material (MR 125), with a great capacity to form a second spike; that prolificity also allows it to have wide advantages in plantings of medium to low densities. It has a high stay green, and a slow drying speed at the beginning of said stage, characteristics that are advantageous for silage plantings”.

For her part, the seed operator of Los Grobo Agropecuaria, Valeria Pereyra, referred to the sanitary and agronomic characteristics of Maíz Grobo 1923 and highlighted: “It is a hybrid that defends itself very well against the main diseases in the region. Tolerance to Glufosinate Ammonium is another advantage, in a product that, we noticed, is beginning to have more adoption in lots with a high weed load."

In this way, and budgeting for growth in sales, the Maíz Grobo 1923 BTRG was added to the wide range of agro-inputs that the company sells, but with the particularity of being its own brand, as well as the brand new Trigo Grobo Limay, which is new to the portfolio and is already making waves (11,000 bags were sold in its first promotional campaign alone).

In this sense, the manager of inputs of Los Grobo Agropecuaria, Jimena Cardaci, added: "Los Grobo is closing the year 21/22 with more than 150 million dollars in sales of inputs, a record for the company in a business unit which is complemented by those of Grain Storage and Agricultural Production in associative schemes”. →
