Anything better than Pioneer corn and soybean seed?

What is the best hybrid of seed that you have had good luck with the few years.  I have planted Pioneer corn 33W84 and soybean  92M61 seed and am looking to change to something that might produce more.  Any ideas?

I plant neither.  Those are two popular choices though.  It takes me a lot of time to study and find something better than I have.

Re Depends on what you mean by better

I have all pioneer beans this year because they produced a high yield last year.

 

This year we have DEKALB seed corn  because it produces a high yield and a fast dry down.  Other hybrids may produce higher yields at a cost of high moisture content. I select based on good yields of drying corn. Although last year our drying cost was horrid compared to "normal" years. I perfer 200+ per acree at 16% moisture. It makes harvest so much easier and less costly.
