As 2014 winter wheat planting season approaches in the Northern Plains, Syngenta urges growers to select varieties with superior genetics and to use balanced agronomic practices. Adding to a proven portfolio of AgriPro brand wheat varieties, Syngenta is offering SY Clearstone CL2, a new hard red winter wheat variety, in Montana and western North Dakota.

“SY Clearstone CL2 is an ideal option for planting this fall because it excelled in a broad range of yield trials in this area and combines excellent yield potential with the agronomics growers have been seeking,” said Corey Dathe, Northern Plains cereals key account lead, Syngenta. “As certified seed, it provides growers with added assurance for consistent performance and high quality.”

SY Clearstone CL2 is a taller, semi-dwarf variety with good test weight and winter hardiness. It offers high protein content and, with two-gene herbicide tolerance, it also gives growers improved weed management options, while still offering high yield potential.

As winter wheat growers begin preparing for the upcoming planting season, Syngenta recommends implementing an integrated approach to crop management. Planting quality certified seed varieties and incorporating good planting practices, such as residue management, proper seeding rates and seed treatments, are critical to helping wheat start strong.

When using seed treatments like CruiserMaxx Vibrance Cereals insecticide/fungicide, protection begins the moment seeds are planted. Vibrance brand seed treatments protect young seedlings from yield-robbing underground pests, as well as promote enhanced germination and more robust stands by boosting the crop’s RootingPower. Growers who choose an integrated management approach that includes planting certified seed treated with top-performing seed treatments can greatly benefit at harvest time, having maximized both their wheat yield and profit potential.
