INDIANAPOLIS -- Mycogen Seeds announces a robust soybean portfolio for the 2010 growing season, including 13 new soybean lines. The company's continued emphasis on providing top-notch soybeans is now backed by a growing investment in research and development, allowing Mycogen Seeds to offer soybeans with the leading trait offerings.
The MYCOGEN(R) brand soybean lineup now includes the most recent technology in the industry, Genuity(TM) Roundup Ready 2 Yield(TM). Four elite MYCOGEN brand soybean varieties incorporate this trait combination to help growers maximize their soybean yield potential. This is in addition to nine new soybean products containing Roundup Ready(R) technology.
"Growers can realize strong yields with optimum weed control, since all of our lines feature either Roundup Ready or Genuity Roundup Ready 2 Yield technology," says John Kalthoff, Mycogen Seeds marketing specialist. "And, growers can look forward to even more added trait performance and new products in the future."

Because of Mycogen Seed's increased commitment to soybeans, all soybean lines will now be sold under the MYCOGEN(R) brand. In previous years, the soybeans carried the Atlas brand.
"We are proud to offer growers a high return on their investment and personalized service, in addition to high-yielding soybean lines," Kalthoff says. "Growers can be confident when they choose MYCOGEN brand soybeans. They will be pleased with the outcome."
