Welcome to Harvest 2018!

FIRST is pleased to once again conduct corn grain and soybean testing in western Ohio, regions Ohio Northwest (OHNW) and Ohio West Central (OHWC), plus corn grain testing in southern Indiana (INSO).

We're frequently asked if non-GMO seed products are tested by FIRST. The answer is "yes" in select regions of Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland.

On our site menu, hover over crop type to see a link to "non-GMO" at the bottom of the crop menu. Or, click on your choice here: Corn Grain Non-GMO or Soybean Non-GMO
