New soybean varieties from DuPont Pioneer face one last challenge in the final year of research testing. During this research stage, soybean varieties are placed in IMPACT (Intensively Managed Product Advancement Characterization and Training) trials on growers’ farms to ensure product performance is up to the standards set by Pioneer.

Recently, 34 Pioneer brand soybean varieties passed final scrutiny from the Pioneer research and development, field sales and agronomy technology service teams and will be commercially available to producers for planting in 2013.

The final year of soybean variety testing provides one more opportunity to gather a significant amount of data from many locations before releasing products to producers.

“This final evaluation on growers’ farms helps us develop a profile of where the product fits on each acre for our customers,” said Don Schafer, DuPont Pioneer senior soybean marketing manager. DuPont Pioneer claims performance packages of agronomic and defensive traits that provide choices to match the right product with the right acre.

All of the new Pioneer soybean varieties were developed using the Accelerated Yield Technology (AYT) system—a set of proprietary research tools that enables soybean researchers to scan and identify genes responsible for important traits and then incorporate them into additional soybean lines. Research tools like AYT have prompted Pioneer to register more than 225 soybean patents. Patent protection includes genetics (varieties), transgenic traits, native traits and breeding technologies. DuPont Pioneer is both implementing a strong patent and protection program and continuing to fund research and development to create new products and technologies for greater value per acre.
