Nursery Services

From project conception, through breeding successive generations, to final go-to-market strategy, we’re here growing for you.

Special Projects

Whether it’s yield trials, herbicide efficacy tests or nitrogen studies, we like to say, “Special projects are our speciality.”

Corn & Soybean Production

Inbred or hybrid, 10,000 rows or 10, no project is too large—or too small.

 

Nursery Services

Every breeding program starts with an idea, and Gray Research Production helps bring yours to life.

Program Conception

As a breeder, you have a vision of the traits and qualities you want to produce in a new strain. From the infancy of your breeding program, we’re here to help you achieve those goals. Even if it takes years we’re here, growing for you.

Program Protocols

We grow according to strict project protocols. Rows planted by design. Pollination as specified. Disease inoculation per orders. And if you need advice or a quick recovery protocol, we’re ready with twenty years of field-tested experience.
