DuPont Pioneer Advancing New Soybean Varieties for 2013

More than 30 Pioneer® brand soybean varieties have made it through the final year of research testing and will be commercially available to producers for 2013 planting. DuPont Pioneer Senior Soybean Marketing Manager Don Schafer says the company’s goal is to provide a full complement of soybeans that yield consistently for farmers year after year. He says the Pioneer research, sales and agronomy teams dig hard to analyze the local disease and agronomic challenges throughout soybean-growing areas and develop products and traits to address those challenges within each region. During the final year of testing – soybean varieties are placed in IMPACT™ trials on growers’ farms to ensure product performance is up to the high standards set by Pioneer. A significant amount of data is gathered during this Intensively Managed Product Advancement Characterization and Training from many locations. Schafer says the 2013 class of Pioneer soybean varieties is a solid group of products with performance packages of agronomic and defensive traits that provide choices to match the right product with the right acre.
