Market prices, cold weather and late harvest may make you feel like you're striking out these days. Let Corn & Soybean Digest pinch-hit for you to take the pressure off your hybrid selection for next year. We asked major seed companies for their home-run hybrids, and have compiled them for you. Check out these top picks for the 2010 growing season.

This guide should be used as a starting point for selecting hybrids for next year. Be sure to also consider university, independent and company trial data when making your decisions.
