BASF and Embrapa launch Cultivance Production System

BASF and Empresa Brasileira de Pesquisa Agropecuária (Embrapa) officially launched the Cultivance Production System, a milestone for Brazilian science, as it contains the first genetically modified soybean fully developed in Brazil.


Stress tolerance trait completes FDA early food safety evaluation

Arcadia Biosciences, Inc. and Bioceres S.A. announced that Verdeca, their soybean technology joint venture, received notification that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has completed the Early Food Safety Evaluation (EFSE) process for HAHB4, the plant protein responsible for Verdeca’s HB4 stress tolerance trait. Completion of this review is a major milestone in the development of commercial soybean seed products based on the HB4 stress tolerance trait, as well as the development of HB4-based products in other crops.


A look at the best corn conditions in the country

With so much attention focused on the nation’s corn struggling against Mother Nature, it’s time to focus on the states with the best corn conditions in the country.

According to the USDA, 69 percent of the nation’s corn is in good or better condition, unchanged from last week but 4 percentage points below last year’s progress. Of that, four states in particular – Iowa, Kentucky, Minnesota and Tennessee – are reporting high percentages of corn in these conditions:


Fall is nematode sampling time

This year, nematodes are certainly alive and well in the Arkansas! And, again as last year, don’t forget that your soybean check-off dollars are at work through the Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board that is sponsoring a soybean nematode survey statewide.


Identifying triazole phytotoxicity vs. SDS

Frogeye leaf spot (FLS) continues to be one of the most important foliar diseases in Arkansas and this year is no exception despite the warmer cropping season. Fungicide-resistant FLS has been detected in almost all soybean producing counties; thus, producers are utilizing triazole fungicides to manage these strains of FLS.

Some triazole fungicides can cause phytotoxicity on soybean that looks very similar to the initial symptoms of sudden death syndrome (SDS), which is being reported in several fields north of I-40.
