The award-winning Y.E.S. Yield Engineering System is enabling Syngenta to bring higher-yielding varieties to the market quicker.

“Growers have benefited greatly from our advanced breeding process,” Doug Tigges, soybeans genetics product manager at Syngenta, said. “Since the debut of the Y.E.S. Yield Engineering System, the yield potential of our new performance class NK Soybeans has never been higher.”

By selecting NK Soybean varieties, growers can be confident that they are planting the latest technologies for their individual fields. The Y.E.S Yield Engineering System has allowed Syngenta soybean breeders to make smarter and more efficient breeding decisions, resulting in a portfolio of high-yielding elite soybean genetics, Tigges said.

In addition to increased yield potential, NK Soybean varieties feature a number of key agronomic benefits to help soybeans start strong. NK Soybeans lead the industry in sudden death syndrome genetic resistance scores. Additionally, new varieties offer resistance packages targeting common early-season diseases and pests, including soybean cyst nematode, iron deficiency chlorosis and Phytophthora root rot.

Chris Blome, a Syngenta Seed advisor, said he experienced firsthand the benefits of planting NK Soybeans.

“NK Soybeans have the best genetic lineup, the most consistent yield and the strongest defensive packages throughout the industry,” Blome said.
