Syngenta has added 29 new soybean varieties for the 2017 growing season.
The new varieties will have features and characteristics to protect crops against many different threats faced by farmers every day. The soybeans, which will range in relative maturity from 0.01 to 6.9, will have built-in resistance to a variety of pests and diseases including soybean cyst nematodes, sudden death syndrome, brown stem rot and Phytophthora root rot.
“We strive to provide the most advanced seed technology for those growers seeking a competitive edge,” Scott Erickson, product marketing manager for soybean seed at Syngenta, said. “Each and every Syngenta soybean variety is the result of advanced research and development, leading to superior performance in a range of conditions. The addition of the Roundup Ready 2 Xtend trait takes that another step further.”
Included in the 29 varieties are 12 varieties which will have the new dicamba-tolerant Ready 2 Xtend technology for yet another weed resistance element. The technology is expected to receive registration for the herbicide products. Syngenta’s Yield Engineering System has allowed the company’s researchers to expand their product range with the latest technologies.
In addition to the Ready 2 Xtend varieties, the 2017 season will also feature new NK varieties and Golden Harvest Soybeans.
