The Burrus Family of Products
If it Isn't the Best, We Don't Put our Name on it.
First and foremost, we are farmers like you — that gives us in-the-field practical know-how that boardroom decision makers just don’t have.
Our multi-brand strategy puts us a step ahead of the game. Providing growers with choice is a big deal. With Burrus, this means you can rotate corn rootworm traits from field to field supporting the longterm durability of CRW Bt. Our single bag refuge products like Optimum® AcreMax® XTreme or Agrisure® 3122 E-Z Refuge™ ensure compliance in one step — fill the planter and go!
What it boils down to is that our standard isn't even on the radar screen for many of our competitors.
In soybeans, our strategy provides the option of rotating your herbicide trait system from Glyphosate tolerant to LibertyLink®, reducing the chance of weed resistance while getting the same high quality and service you expect from Burrus. In the near future, we will be offering stacked trait beans with two modes of action for more durability.
Bigger isn’t always better! The Burrus passion to be the best supplier you have drives us to go the extra mile in everything we do. Our seed production techniques provide the utmost care to achieve the highest quality. Scoop your hand into the seed and compare. You can see the difference.
The extra attention Burrus spends on many small details means extra profitability for you — things like hooded spraying to improve purity four-color color sorting, double gravitying, Defol to control seed size and improve cold germination, having the ideal treatment recipe to establish a stand under cold, wet conditions as well as add yield. And those are just a few on the list. We have furnished 100% free replant for 80 years because we are just as interested in you getting a stand as you are.
Whether it’s our Poncho® 500 VOTiVO PowerShield® seed treatment standard at no extra cost or our 24-hour service guarantee, Burrus does it right. The best way to predict the future is to create it.
Other seed companies would view those as upgrades or extra-mile services. Not here! We also have a testing program designed to identify the highest performing products for your local area. We understand that not every acre you farm is flat and black. Nationwide companies only test on the most productive soils then choose products that can go far and wide. Those products are good but often not the very best for your soils and management style.
Our Crop Optimization Planner (COP) through MyFarmsSM is an easy-to-use tool that combines farm knowledge and data with our product knowledge and experience for your individual fields. We can create prescription planting plans to vary your population by soil type and management zone all on the go. We can even write a prescription to change hybrids automatically — you don’t have to worry about anything except driving.
You’ll find, too, that Burrus is a non-GM leader. Technology-owned companies often handicap their conventional hybrids to make sure their “high dollar products” are better. We don’t do that ... and don’t need to do that. Our conventional products are the best they can be.
The extra attention Burrus spends on many small details means extra profitability for you — things like hooded spraying to improve purity... four color... color sorting... double gravitying... having the ideal treatment recipe to establish stand under cold, wet conditions that enhance yield — and those are just a few on the list.
Finished planting your corn? Go right ahead and plant your soybeans! PowerShield seed treatment for soybeans includes fungicides, insecticides, phytopthera suppression, and biologicals to encourage root growth and enhance yield. Because we back them with a 100% Free Replant guarantee, you can plant early to maximize your performance. We include ILeVO® for Sudden Death Syndrome control on beans. We call it PowerShield SDS.
What it boils down to is that our standard isn’t even on the radar screen for many of our competitors. Even our Coon’s Choice sweet corn gets updates from year to year. Unequalled, unmatched.
Better yet, all of these great offerings to help you get maximum profitability out of every acre are featured on our redesigned, responsive website. We encourage you to explore the site and discover what a tremendous grower resource it is. Check out some of the new videos, too, to see why Burrus is different and to see why what we do, we do for you.
Yes, we are confident that Burrus is the best choice. We have corn in our blood. Serving you is a privilege, not a job. What we bring to your operation is the best it can be or we wouldn’t put our name on the bag.
