As winter wheat planting approaches in the Eastern Cornbelt region, 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 this year introduces three new winter wheat varieties.

“We’re excited to offer these new varieties to provide stronger pest tolerance and deliver higher yield, quality and profit potential,” said Syngenta’s Cassie Misch, Eastern Cornbelt region key account lead. “They serve a range of grower needs and should help the region start the winter wheat season off right.”

The new varieties are:

• SY 1526: SY 1526 is a suitable option for double-cropsituations common across Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and western Ohio. SY 1526 is an early maturing variety with very fast fall emergence and spring greenup. Additionally, this variety has very good head scab tolerance.

• SY 483: For growers from northern Illinois through western Pennsylvania, as well as West Virginia and the Delmarva, seeking optimal yield, SY 483 has excellent yield potential under intense management. With very good winter survival and tolerance to soil virus and Rhizoctonia, this variety provides a uniform start for your wheat crop.

• SY 901: SY 901 offers growers in southern Michigan, northern Indiana and Ohio exceptional sprout tolerance, harvesting flexibility and moderate tolerance to powdery mildew. With very good winter survival, it provides good stands that will carry wheat crops throughout the season.

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.

“With seed treatments like Vibrance Extreme fungicide and Cruiser 5FS insecticide, protection begins the moment seeds are planted,” Misch explained. “As the season progresses, scouting and applying foliar fungicides become important. Growers who choose an integrated management approach will greatly benefit at harvest time, having maximized both their wheat yield and profit potential.”
