Turn-key Breeding Programs and Production ServicesGray Research Production is a research farm designed and operated to meet the exacting demands of our customers and their unique breeding and production projects.
From project conception, through breeding successive generations, to final go-to-market strategy, we’re here growing for you.
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.
Every breeding program starts with an idea, and Gray Research Production helps bring yours to life.
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.
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.
Our end-to-end reporting services include production schedules, planting dates, germination rates, flowering dates, stand counts, environmental conditions, disease susceptibility, yield estimates and anything else you specify.
Nitrogen studies, yield trials, trait evaluation trials—whatever your challenge, we offer a 100% commitment to making your project a success.
