As 2014 winter wheat planting season approaches in the Eastern Corn Belt, Syngenta reminds growers to implement sound management practices and select varieties with consistent performance and superior genetics. Adding to its portfolio of AgriPro brand wheat varieties, Syngenta introduces SY 007 and SY 474 soft red winter wheat varieties.

"These new varieties with unique attributes and high yield, quality, and profit potential, serve a range of grower needs in this region to help start the wheat season off right," said Cassie Misch, Eastern Corn Belt region key account lead, Syngenta. "As certified seeds, they provide growers with added assurance for consistent performance and high quality."

The new varieties are:

• SY 007: SY 007 offers excellent straw strength and very good Rhizoctonia tolerance, as well as very good tolerance against soil virus and spindle streak mosaic virus. SY 007 is a medium-early maturity variety that also provides a fast dry-down time, which allows for earlier double-crop soybean planting.

•SY 474: SY 474 offers excellent yield potential and standability under intense management strategies, while still providing above-average milling and baking characteristics. Bred to withstand the tough winters in the Eastern Corn Belt, it offers a very good leaf disease tolerance package, as well as good plant height and straw strength.

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 Vibrance Extreme fungicide or CruiserMaxx VibranceCereals 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.
