Higher yield potential highlights newest T Series soybeans
The DuPont Pioneer 2014 lineup contains 44 new T Series varieties, ranging in maturity from Group 00 to Group 5. While the plant breeding emphasis is on high-yield potential, the lineup includes a diverse range of defensive traits growers can tailor to the localized challenges in their individual fields.
“This second wave of Pioneer brand T Series soybean varieties offers improved yield potential and defensive traits for growers from the northern to the southern states,” says Andre Trepanier, DuPont Pioneer soybean marketing manager. “The goal is to continue helping growers obtain consistently higher yields in their fields.”
An expanded offering of herbicide tolerant traits are available, including products with the original Roundup Ready, Genuity Roundup Ready 2 Yield, LibertyLink and DuPont STS technologies.
In addition, Pioneer is introducing four new products that feature the Plenish high oleic trait. This trait allows growers in participating processor areas to contract Plenish soybeans for the high oleic oil market, providing attractive oil alternatives to food and industrial markets. These varieties offer top tier performance and on par with elite Pioneer soybean varieties plus processor-paid contract premiums for added per acre returns.
“Growers can work with their Pioneer sales professional to identify the right product for each acre,” Trepanier says. “The necessary defensive traits will vary depending on geography and field history. It’s important to choose a variety that will stand up to the in-season challenges each operation faces.”
The new Pioneer T Series products carry resistance or tolerance to key yield-robbing diseases and pests, including Phytophthora root rot, soybean cyst nematode (SCN), sudden death syndrome, brown stem rot, iron chlorosis and frogeye leaf spot.
“Growers also can take advantage of Pioneer Premium Seed Treatment offerings, to provide an extra level of performance for improved early-season disease and insect protection,” Trepanier says. “This new T Series class adds to an already strong soybean lineup, giving growers even better opportunities to succeed.”
T Series products are the result of a relentless research and testing focus to deliver products with higher yield potential. To learn more about these new T Series varieties and see which fit their fields, growers can contact their Pioneer sales professional.
