drought tollerance

Finally read an article in the JD magazine, if you can call it an article, might have been another advertisement.  Hard to tell in the Furrow.  

Article was on the promise of drought tolerant genetics in Corn seed.  I have plugged this thought in a couple of times.  But wouldn't 2012 have been the perfect year fot these new genetic advancement ideas to have sky rocketed into the forfront.  I have been patiently reading and waiting for the "proof in the pudding" phase.  

Or is this so evident that all it takes is the "drought tolerant" label to be present.  Our testing has been very slow to be impressive, with two hard years behind us the plant health issue seems proven, the yield results were not impressive------so far.

 

Anyone get some solid education on this issue??
