WE ARE FARMERS FIRST! ®

This 2013 T. A. Seeds Product Guide is dedicated to my

T.A. Doebler Family Heritage. (Family Heritage is one thing you

truly own.) From all the great people I have met who tell me

stories of meetings with my grandfather, T.A. Doebler, Sr., (a

people person), and my father, T.A. “Ted” Doebler, Jr., (a great

production manager, with an extensive knowledge of hybrids),

it gives me great pride to be a III Generation Farmer and

Seedsman. Ted Doebler, Jr. and T.A. Doebler, Sr. were very

different people, having unique skills that together with my

grandmother, Hazel Doebler, (the business manager), produced

the best product for the Eastern farmer. I am fortunate to have

learned from these people. Now that we have crossed the

80 Year Threshold, I look forward to working beside a talented

team of people - developed over 20 or more years and considered

“my family”. Together we will continue to produce the best

hybrids for the Eastern farmer.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

T.A. Seeds is Celebrating 80 Years of Harvest!

It was 80 years ago my grandfather, T. A. Doebler, Sr., harvested the first crop

of hybrid seed corn. Our motto has always been “We Are Farmers First! ® ” to

our customers. We know what your challenges are in the east, as we grow

your seed corn in the same soil and climate. These last two years have

really tested our products and your resilience. Can Mother Nature throw

any more at us? Of course she can! We will be grateful for what we have

and at T.A. Seeds we will prepare for more extreme growing conditions.

We will continue to search for better genetics and helpful traits that yield in

the best and the worst conditions; to focus on improving your bottom line

from prior years’ harvests.

At T.A. Seeds we are very thankful for your belief in our products for the

past III Generations. We celebrate with great pride the dedication of the

farmer and the family. Our family has made significant gains in our production

techniques over the past few years. Even with the tough weather in 2011,

our first harvest of our No-Till planting of seed corn was successful.

Changing our planting procedures to No-Till was the right thing to do to

limit soil erosion, and we are excited to be the leader, as one of the only

seed producers in the country implementing the No-Till concept.

Even though our No-Till plantings were successful we had challenges

throughout the growing season with drought and extreme high temperatures

resulting in lower yields. We were very progressive in letting everyone

know immediately after our harvest in 2011, that seed availability was going

to be limited. We believed that communicating the seed shortage early

would benefit everyone and we were correct. At the end of planting season,

our T.A. Seeds’ dealers were able to supply our farmers with the seed they

needed. This confirmed that even in tough times you can count on us for

your farm’s seed and rely on us for our honesty.

Our new state-of-the-art horizontal seed processing facility and optical color

sorter has performed above our expectations. This one-of-a-kind system has

preserved the integrity of the germ inside the kernel and we thank you for

noticing the higher seed quality these past two years.

Where do we go in the future? At T.A. Seeds we keep the integrity of the

past, the success of the present, and seek ways to grow to a better place in

the future. Yes, we have grown to be a proven seed company, rising above

the competition, a leader in the independent seed industry. More importantly,

we have your confidence that you — the eastern farmer — can successfully

rely on us. Our products beat the national competition in field trials we

enter, but most importantly they yield in your fields consistently.

We are your advocate for a successful harvest in 2012 and planting in 2013

— no matter what the weather. The introduction of 24 NEW Genetic Brands

with Multiple Trait Variations in this 2013 T.A. SeedsProduct Guide is

exciting and should take your farm to the next level of success.

I dedicate this year of harvest to the hard work and passion of my family for

the past 80 years. We at T.A. Seeds THANK YOU for being part of our lives

and the opportunity to make your farming experience better than the past.

Let’s celebrate the future together.

T.A. Seeds is proud to support...

T H E D A I R Y F A R M E R

For 80 years, our product line-up has focused on varieties of corn

specifically bred for the eastern dairy farmer. Our genetics are chosen

to accommodate the diversity of climatic and soil zones, which is why we

have coined the term Zone Select Genetics ® .

Our product development process and on-site visits to your

dairy operations have helped us customize our line-up for

you. Within this catalog, our dairy hybrids are labeled

with this Milk Bottle Symbol. These hybrids will maximize

the nutrition of your crop as well as providing superior

performance.

Hybrid Corn Silage – T.A. Seeds is aggressively selecting

and testing corn hybrids that make more milk! You want

more production from input and we feel we have found the

silage-only and dual-purpose hybrids that will do that. Our

hybrids continue to produce more CWT per acre, and we are balancing

tonnage and quality to offer the best silage corn available by any seed

company today.

In fact our new BASF NutriDense ® hybrids have been proven to provide

more milk with better feed efficiency (up to 8%). Yields have been equal to

or better than dual-purpose, with a careful balance between digestibility and

rumen function. These hybrids are worth a second look, and used in

conjunction with best practices in management, you will see a difference,

and ultimately more profit. If you prefer conventional traits, we have a

variety of those as well, again, chosen for value and performance.

Yields don’t lie! T.A. Seeds has risen to the top in many independent testing

programs. In 2011, we received an astounding 150 #1 selections, even in

less-than-ideal conditions. Our corn seeds consistently perform, year after

year, with hundreds of #1 placements, and our Zone Support Managers can

help you choose the right variety for your farm. T.A. Seeds is one of the only

truly independent seed companies left in the east, and we want to be your

partner in customizing your seed choices.

Remember, the best hybrids give you a great foundation upon which to

build your program. Harvesting silage at the proper moisture and how the

silage is prepared for feeding are critical factors in your nutritional program.

We also encourage you to look at our silage inoculant products (listed

on pages 38-39). We are your neighbors and share some of the same

challenges you do, because We Are Farmers First! ®

On the next page, you’ll see our “Cream of the Crop” list, the best varieties

of silage and dual purpose corn we offer. If you have any questions, or need

our help in choosing, please don’t hesitate to call. Remember, we select

and breed our seeds here. We grow, sort, bag, and distribute them from

here as well.

BINDER FRIENDLY ®

HYBRID SELECTIONS

8 YEARS & COUNTING

For the eighth consecutive year, T.A. Seeds is offering corn seed

varieties that have been proven to work well with corn binders.

We have carried out extensive testing for Binder Friendly ® corn

varieties in four locations: two in Centre County and two in

Lancaster County.

All of the locations have tested the full line of NEW hybrids

alongside our already proven Binder Friendly ® corn varieties. We

have also tested our full line of NutriDense ® hybrids with some

earlier and later varieties of experimental NutriDense ® hybrids.

The Binder Friendly ® maturities we offer now range from

94 - 116 days with a total of 18 Dual-Purpose varieties and

three NutriDense ® hybrids.

We have extensively tested the new varieties. We are adding

nine new varieties to the list of Binder Friendly ® hybrids. Let us

personally help you choose the right one for your farm.

Each year, Amish farmers harvest T.A. Seeds’ Binder Friendly ®

corn fields and rate our brands the best in handling and

quality for bindering. On the next page you will see our

Binder Friendly ® list of T.A. Seeds’ brands being offered

this year for alternative harvesters.

The Added Value Story –

It’s Not Your Father’s MOD!

Remember years ago when we offered Modified Single-Cross Hybrids?

Back then we called them MODS, or sister-line crosses.

We had revived those classics last year, and we have proven that they are

not the old genetics. Our ADDED VALUE MODS are offered with improved

genetics, specifically bred for fields or soil types that don’t have top-end

yield capabilities.

We suggest that you plant these hybrids in fields were the soil is not high

producing and at moderate-to-low populations. (i.e., shale, gravel,

outcroppings, mountain fields that wildlife frequent, etc.) If you have

any of these conditions on your farm, these are the hybrid varieties you

should be using.

MODS have great emergence and seedling vigor, average stalks and

roots, multi-use plant type, (silage, ear, and grain harvest), and ADDED

VALUE yields.

Our ADDED VALUE MODS make more seed in our seed fields, so we will

pass that savings on to you. We anticipate selling out of inventory, so

all sales are final and we will not accept returns.

Please ask your T.A. Seeds’ Zone Support Manager, or your dealer, for

the special low pricing on these hybrids and to place your order.

Benefits of New Soybean Seed

Convenience:

• Highest quality and highest yielding product vs. bin-run

• Reliable seed supply in many maturities

Economics of New Seed vs. Bin-Run

• Bin-run planting rates are generally 15% higher than new certified

seed

• New seed yields an average of 1.8 bushel/acre more than bin-run

(university yield trials range from 1.2-5.9 bushel/acre)

Limited Warranty Benefits

• Dealer agronomic support before and after the sale

• Risk management benefits of Roundup Rewards ® (over $600 million

paid to farmers since 1997)

New Innovations

• Monsanto is 100% committed to agriculture

• T.A. Seeds and Monsanto are committed to our customers’ success

FORAGE TREATMENT

WHY USE AN

INOCULANT?

using an inoculant

preserves feeds:

• mold-free

• controlled heating

• reduced DM loss

• better palatability

using an inoculant

protects nutrition:

• preserves protein

• saves energy

• improves

digestibility

• more efficient feed

Management Tip:

Apply Vital Guard TM

on last loads of corn

silage, haylage, and

HMC in storage

structure to help

prevent surface

spoilage.

CROP GUARD:

• Seven strains of beneficial, naturally occurring

bacteria; three types of enzymes. Crop Guard DI is

made from a blend of bacteria that are microencapsulated

and combined with enzymes and mold

inhibitors. Guaranteed Microbial Analysis — minimum

182,500,000,000 CFu’s/pound. Guaranteed

Treat Cover Crops

Like Your Cash Crops!

Here are 10 tips to help you tackle cover crop seed selection:

1. Performance Over Price - Just like you purchase seed corn,

soybeans, and other cash crop seed, buy cover crop seeds on value

with seed genetics that produce the traits and benefits you desire.

utilize knowledgeable Cover Crop Solutions’ seed dealers who provide

resources and experience that help you choose cover crops that pay.

2. Spread Risk - Follow the fundamentals of cash crop establishment

and plant as soon as possible after harvest or prior to harvest.

Plant for diversity, or with multi-specie blends, to lessen weather risks,

break pest cycles and prevent erosion that some monoculture species

are vulnerable to.

3. Use Test Plots - A cover crop test plot on your farm is the best

way to really know how cover crops work for you. Have a check strip

adjacent to your test plots to show a comparison to help determine

benefits.

4. Plan Ahead - It’s simple; improved cover crops equal improved

cash crops. Be prepared. Know your planting window. Have your seed

available, equipment calibrated, and your workers prepared to plant.

5. On-Farm Testing & Research - Collaborate with others,

including Cover Crop Solutions, to replicate field scale research testing

to give credible data for the real world. Follow up with a field day to

show your neighbors and encourage what could work best for your

area.

6. Follow a Plan - Be strategic in determining which species to

plant in front of the next cash crop. Generally legumes before corn and

grasses before beans. Tillage Radish ® can be planted before both, and

TillageMax Blends are becoming more popular. Consider adding wheat

on a few acres or short season corn or soybeans to expand planting

window opportunities.

7. Record Keeping - As with cash crops, keep a record of cover

crop planting dates, seeding rates, and other important details.

Incorporate this information into your crop management programs:

crop consulting, conservation plans, fertility, soil testing, yield testing,

moisture and nutrient availability data. Make notes comparing soil

quality, harvestability, and any issues that may need to be addressed.

8. Spread the Harvest - Make more of your fields available for

cover cropping. Consider planting short season hybrids and varieties,

planting wheat, or including grazing in your rotation.

9. Fertility Management - Legumes can add nitrogen while

Tillage RootMax TM Deep Root Annual Ryegrass and Tillage Radish can

keep nitrogen from leaking into tile lines and groundwater. These cover

crops can be a tool for nutrient management planning and for increasing

soil biological activity.

10. Utilize Your Best Resources - Seek knowledgeable Cover

Crop Solutions’ seed dealers, university extension teams, NRCS

personnel and websites that provide creditable cover crop information.

Challenge yourself, your hired hands and the next generation in finding

ways to incorporate cover cropping into your operation!

THE COVER CROP LINE-UP

T.A. Seeds is proud to offer six cover crop options:

Tillage Radish ®

This is the most recognized, and best, radish cover crop product available today. These

radishes will break up soil compaction and store nutrients for your soil like mini-silos.

The key lies in the fine tap roots, which have been measured up to 36” into the soil

(results depend on soil quality). The plants will winter kill and the tubers will decompose

in the spring. Seed at 8-10 lb/acre from mid-August to mid-September (depending on

location). Seed comes in 50 lb bags.

Tillage Max Indy Blend

Tillage Radish ® + Tillage RootMax + CCS Crimson Clover - This 3-way blend

provides a combination of deep soil tillage and yield benefits achieved only by Tillage

Radish, the soil building improvements of Tillage RootMax and the nitrogen fixing

advantages of CCS Crimson Clover for a high performance cover crop blend. Seeding

with 2” in-row): 12 lbs/acre (Kinze Brush Meter with Backing Plate - 60 Cell Milo

Plate). Seed comes in 50 lb bags.

Tillage Max Daytona Blend

Tillage Radish® + CCS Crimson Clover - Tillage Radish is the only proven yield-boosting

cover crop radish, and absorbs soil nitrogen and other key nutrients with its unique

taproot that grows 30” and deeper. CCS Crimson Clover converts atmospheric nitrogen

into plant available nitrogen, helping reduce fertilizer input while improving soil health

by adding organic matter. Maximum nitrogen is achieved at firstflower of CCS Crimson

Clover. This is a high performance cover crop blend. Seeding Rate: - Drilling: 10 lbs/acre

- Broadcast / Aerial: 13-15 lbs/acre - Precision Planting (15” with 1.5” in-row): 8 lbs/acre

(Kinze Brush Meter with Backing Plate - 60 Cell Milo Plate). Seed comes in 50 lb bags.

Tillage Max Bristol Blend

Tillage Radish ® + Tillage RootMax - Tillage Radish breaks up soil compaction with its

aggressive taproot, creating thick channels 30” or deeper. This nitrogen storage tank holds

N and other nutrients over winter and releases them as needed by following cash crops.

Tillage RootMax builds soil structure deeper than many other ARG varieties. In combination,

this outstanding cover crop mixture provides added cover in the spring prior to control.

Seeding Rate: - Drilling: 12 lbs/acre - Broadcast / Aerial: 15-17 lbs/acre - Precision Planting

(15” with 1.75” in-row): 10 lbs/acre (Kinze Brush Meter with Backing Plate - 60 Cell Milo

Plate). Seed comes in 50 lb bags.

Tillage Max Dover Blend

Tillage Radish ® + CCS Oats - Both excellent scavengers of N, this Tillage Radish and CCS

Oats mix will grow rapidly in cool weather and is ideal for quick fall cover. Tillage Radish

breaks up soil, even in the compaction zone, with its long, singular taproot to create thick

channels 30” or deeper. This blend enhances seedbeds, provides more ground cover in

spring, helps control erosion, works to control harmful - nematodes, and will winterkill for

easy spring management. Seeding Rate: - Drilling: 25 lbs/acre - Broadcast / Aerial: 30-45

lbs/acre - Precision Planting (15” with 5” in-row): 20 lbs/acre (Kinze Brush Meter with

Backing Plate - 60 Cell Soybean Plate). Seed comes in 50 lb bags.

Traits

Refuge is important. In fact, it’s required to

help keep insects from developing resistance

to the trait. Planning and implementing a

separate refuge for each field can be timeconsuming.

That’s why Genuity ® offers the truly simple

refuge-in-a-bag solution.

By providing complete insect protection in a

single bag, Genuity ® offers maximum yield

protection for the Corn-Growing Area.


Insect Resistance Management

Insects are a major cause of crop damage and yield loss, requiring farmers to

often make multiple applications of chemical pesticides to combat insect pests.

To protect the yield potential of plants and significantly decrease pesticides use,

insect-resistant traits in transgenic plants using Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis) were developed.

Crops with a Bt trait have been modified to produce a protein that is toxic to various forms

of insect larvae. Bt proteins have long been used as topical sprays in conventional and organic

agriculture because they are effective and can be used safely. Crops that are genetically engineered

to carry the Bt trait allow farmers to protect their crops while eliminating or significantly

decreasing the amount of pesticides sprayed.

Monsanto’s Bt corn and cotton products will sustain less damage from some of the most

troublesome lepidopteran pests, but they will not control all insect pests in the crop. Therefore,

it is important to understand that, in some cases, severe infestations of target and/or non-target

insects may occur and require additional control measures.

The best way for growers to preserve the benefits and insect protection of Bacillus thuringiensis

(Bt) technology is to incorporate Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices and to develop

and implement Insect Resistance Management (IRM). The IRM plan is used to decrease the

likelihood of an insect developing the ability to survive pesticide application or the ingestion of

transgenic crops containing the Bt trait. Every grower of a Monsanto Bt corn or cotton product

must comply with licensing terms and must have an Insect Resistance Management (IRM) plan.

CALCULATING YIELDS

G R A I N F O R M U L A

All crop yields can be easily calculated by using the following formula

and inserting the appropriate factor for each crop from the table below.

Yield = (100 - moisture) x (lb. of grain) x (factor) ÷ (row length in

feet) ÷ (row width in inches x number of rows) Example: 4,000 lb. of

17.5% shelled corn from 8.30” rows, 1,000’ long. Yield = 82.5 x 4000

x 109.815 ÷ 1000 divided by 240” = 151.0 bu/acre.

Conversion factor for ear corn = 90.439

Compare hybrids or varieties grown side-by-side with equal cultural

practices and environment.

SILAGE FORMuLA: (100 - actual % silage moisture) x (green weight

silage in tons/A.) ÷ (30) = Tons/A. of silage adjusted to 70% moisture.

For 65% moisture silage, ÷ 35 instead of 30. For dry weight basis, ÷ 100.

STAND DENSITY EVALUATION-ALFALFA

The decision to rotate from alfalfa should be based on yield

potential of the stand. Plant density is a poor estimator of yield

potential because an individual plant may have few shoots and

contribute little to the yield. Stem density is the best estimator

of yield potential.

STAND DENSITY PREDICTED

(stems/sq. ft.) ACTION YIELD POTENTIAL

>55 Stem density not Same as prior year

limiting yield

40-55 Some yield If good health, same

reduction expected as prior year*

30% of crowns and roots have significant discoloration, then

yield potential is less. New seedlings should have at least 25-30

plants per square foot the seeding year.
