Pursuit Of 300(SM): The Road To Higher Yields

Stocks in this article: MOS

PLYMOUTH, Minn., Aug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mosaic Company today introduced Pursuit of 300: The Road To Higher Yields at the Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa. The aspirational program uses U.S. farmers' real-world experiences as a launch pad for agronomists, researchers, retailers and industry stakeholders to discuss and create the next generation of cropping systems—and one day grow 300 bushels of corn per acre.

Centered on the digital journals of select corn growers in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota and Nebraska, Pursuit of 300 chronicles innovative techniques used on each farm's 100-acre plot for a full production year. These Pursuit of 300 Farmers and collaborative partners will share their yield challenges and solutions at, a one-stop digital hub for social media dialogue, agriculture news, case studies, and university, industry and retail resources. Watch the " Pursuit of 300: The Road To Higher Yields " video about Mosaic's passionate call to innovate, increase yield and help the world grow the food it needs.

For some corn growers, 300 bushels per acre might seem like an unattainable yield number. However, Pursuit of 300 aims to bring together all facets of the corn production chain to help the agriculture community conquer and surpass the 300-bushel barrier.

"For these farmers, the Pursuit of 300 is not just a test plot or a yield contest; it's 100 acres of soil, plants and resources managed to improve yields through innovative thinking, research, technology and practices that best suit their land," said Kevin Kimm, Senior Director of Marketing at The Mosaic Company. "We're interested in using Pursuit of 300 to help determine effective, full-farm techniques to boost future yield. It will be great to see how local yield innovation can improve agriculture on a global scale."

Since 1980, American farmers have increased corn production by 88 percent. Farms have improved the efficiency of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium fertilizer use by 50 percent in corn production. The adoption of variable rate technologies, high-yield corn hybrids, micronutrient application, improved weed and disease control tools, and state-of-the-art agronomic practices has boosted yields to all-time highs—with experts from all parts of the industry contributing to the high-yield success story.
