Corn breeders explain it this way: "Maximum hybrid vigor occurs in the first generation after a cross of two inbred lines." DeKalb simply says this: "We know that the right Single-Crosses have the ability to produce greater yields, to better withstand diseases and insects, and to take the stresses of modern farming." Because DeKalb has led the way in developing superior Single-Cross Hybrids, only DeKalb can offer such a wide choice of thoroughly tested XL Varieties. Single-Cross seed is difficult to produce.
