Using BRANDT Smart Quatro, Manni-Plex and N-Boost, Georgia farmer Randy Dowdy set a world record for soybean yield last week with a plot producing 171.8 bushels of soybeans per acre.

Dowdy worked with BRANDT territory sales manager Katherine Williams to develop the fertility program.

“We are so proud of this great achievement and thankful for all of the great people and companies that helped contribute to this soybean record," Dowdy said. "I would like to give special thanks to BRANDT. I continue to be impressed with the performance of BRANDT’s nutrition products and the company’s innovation in plant health. Thank to you to Katherine and the entire BRANDT team for helping us craft what I believe to be one of the best soybean fertility programs available today.”

This is not Dowdy's first win in the Georgia Soybean Production Contest. He broke Georgia's soybean record in 2014. He also won the 2014 National Corn Growers Association National Corn Yield Contest.

“Congratulations to Mr. Dowdy on this great achievement," Williams said. "We would like to thank Mr. Dowdy and Southern States for entrusting BRANDT and including our nutritional products in the fertility program for this yield contest. We are honored to have the opportunity to work with progressive, record breaking growers of Mr. Dowdy’s caliber.”
