Syngenta offers 20 new soybean varieties for 2014
While there isn’t a crystal ball that can predict the weather or reveal which pests will be widespread for the 2014 growing season, farmers can enable their soybeans to start strong with the right seed selection. To assist U.S. soybean farmers, Syngenta is releasing 20 new NK brand soybean varieties for the 2014 season that offer superior performance across various environments.
Spanning maturity groups 0 through V, the new varieties feature built-in resistance to disease pressures such as Phytophthora root rot and sudden death syndrome, and yield- robbing pests like soybean cyst nematode (SCN).
“Developed from one of the most advanced germplasm pools in the industry, these new NK varieties offer versatility across varying environments, provide superior defensive packages and boost yield potential,” said Doug Tigges, soybean genetics product manager at Syngenta. “We are looking forward to a successful 2014 season.”
