Our 2018 Malting Barley is off to a great start! Nice to see some green with all the fall colors.
We want to give a big Thank You to everyone who attended our 2017 customer appreciation dinner. We hope you were able to enjoy some time socializing with friends and neighbors while enjoying a good meal. The tenderloin was prepared and grilled by our own Tom Justice with help from Bruce Morris, and Patty Kruger from the Sunroom at the Brick provided the sides. We can’t thank our employees enough for their help getting us prepared.
We also want to thank our speakers:
Matt Milliken from Cargill Chillicothe who gave us an update on the transition from ADM to Cargill.
Laura Lindsey from Ohio State who gave a presentation on her research on high yielding soybean production.
We hope you all have a safe and successful fall harvest!

We at Hiser Seeds would like to thank all of our customers for a very successful, however challenging, spring! We hope that your experience was equally successful. We know there are plenty of options for seed in the area, so your continued business is truly appreciated.
Next year will bring a new combination of challenges, but as every year we’ll be ready to help you be as successful as possible.
Be on the look out for a date for our annual customer appreciation dinner. Time to start thinking about Wheat orders!
It was an interesting spring to say the least. A common concern this year dealt with replanting. Is it better to kill a field with a poor stand and start over, or try and plant the empty areas? Below is a link to an article in the C.O.R.N. Newsletter from OSU that covers some of the considerations to produce the highest yield. There are too many variables to ever find a silver bullet for replant situations, but it’s good to know that you always have options. One thing is for sure, we hope never have to count on this year’s experience again!
We were able to harvest our Malting Barley fields this week. This is our second year growing Malting Barley and we saw quite the improvement from our first year. Some credit can be given to learning from last year’s experience, but the biggest change was the variety selected for production. We grew a two row variety as opposed to a six row last year. This new variety will provide a grain that is more desirable for malting.
Growing conditions were challenging this year with most of the late winter and spring time being damp and cold. Timely applications of nitrogen and fungicide were keys to a high yielding crop. Regardless of what growing conditions we may have each season the overall goal of Malting Barley production is the same as all of our products, Consistent High Quality.
We have been working with Origin Malts to set up a supply chain of Ohio grown Malting Barely for their new Malting Facility. Our production is still in it’s infancy, but we look forward to Malting Barley being a profitable choice for Ohio farmers for the first time in decades.
Hiser Seeds has been serving farmers in South Central Ohio since 1937. A lot has changed since we sold our first bag of seed, but our commitment to bringing our customers the highest quality products remains the same.
We are continuously updating our product listings to be as accurate as possible, but if you don’t see what you’re looking for please give us a call! 740-993-2311
