The Yuma Area can produce two crops a year of Corn, Dry Beans and related crops.  We total about 7000 Corn Growing degree units per calendar Year.


  • Corn planted late February matures in early July
  • Corn Planted in early August is mature in December
  • Two crops per season possible—we can do inbreds in the spring and then turn around and do crossing blocks in the fall, or vice-versa!
  • Similar windows for Dry Beans
  • Plenty of heat to accommodate August plantings for Sorghum


Full selfing, cross pollinating, reciprocal crosses, Isolated Crossing Blocks, Isolated Selfing Blocks from a few plants to moderate acreages are possible.


Relative ease of Isolation is the cornerstone of our success.

With an abundance of labor, we can put crews of a few, or a few hundred into the fields as needed.


Hege Tray system available, along with cone planters and an SRES / Monosem vacuum plot planter, allows us to plant any size plot configuration.


Drip Irrigation systems allow very short planting offsets to happen on time, and keeps the field dry for tasks to be completed when appropriate


Machine or Hand harvesting, shelling, drying, cleaning, treating of any size program.  Our range of equipment allows us to handle single ears/heads/plants, up to our 100 Bu/hour Clipper.

Yuma is also an established area for seed crops with brassicas, onions and other vegetables.
