JFS 2022 Program
JFS 2022 Program
The corn products listed in this seed guide have been evaluated in several areas by independent sources and have been advanced to a commercial level. You must have a license with JFS and Associates, LTD. to market these genetics. Once you obtained a license to market this material, purchased seed stock, and either produced your own hybrid seed or purchased it wholesale, you will owe a royalty fee on each unit that you sell. When you obtain your license, you will receive a list of royalty rates for the hybrids and a seed stock price listing for each inbred.
For some of the JFS hybrids, wholesale supplies exist in the market. Permission from JFS must be granted for any customer to buy or sell wholesale seed. One can contact the office using the phone numbers listed on the cover for availability.
Field Day – Wednesday, September 21, 2022

JFS – Distributor of Foliar Fertilizer
JFS is now a distributor of a foliar fertilizer that contains kelp and several micro-nutrients along with N, P, and K. JFS tested this material on soybeans last year and found a significant yield advantage. Several years ago, I did several studies on just the extracts from kelp, and I found good results on corn, tomatoes, melons, potatoes, and cucumbers. The name of the foliar fertilizer is Triple 5+, and it is applied at the rate of 24 to 32 ounces per acre. At the maximum rate, it costs $20.00 per acre. The best time to apply the foliar fertilizer to corn is during the first 30 days as the growth hormones from the kelp promotes good root development that not only increases root access to nutrients, but also helps in time of environmental stress like drought. Since ear size is determined early in the life cycle of corn, it can help maintain optimum genetic potential of ear size. For soybeans, the foliar fertilizer should be applied just when the plants start to flower.
