AgriGold has announced its collaboration with Kinze Manufacturing Inc. to conduct on-farm testing of the world's first electric multi-hybrid concept planter in Iowa.

The multi-hybrid technology provides farmers with the ability to change the seed hybrid they are planting automatically as the planter moves through the field.

Kinze has developed a true multi-hybrid planter.

Two hybrids with different genetic backgrounds can be loaded into the planter and will switch on-the-go based on a multi-hybrid prescription map loaded into the monitor. 

This planter can also deliver a variable-rate seeding prescription.

AgriGold is working with growers in Iowa using the planter this spring.

Here's a recap of Kinze's work on the multi-hybrid planter concept:
