Syngenta introduces new wheat varieties

New wheat varieties are being introduced for the Northern Plains, including SY Valda hard red spring wheat variety package with improved tolerance to stem and leaf rust, tan spot, and Fusarium head blight.
“The basis of the AgriPro breeding program has been providing growers with high protein varieties like SY Ingmar and SY Soren, and now we have a new high yield variety like SY Valda, which is very exciting to complement the program,” said Corey Dathe, Northern Plains cereals key account lead, Syngenta. “SY Valda has a nice mix of top-end yield potential and excellent agronomics, plus standability. This has extended green leaf duration, allowing for maximum yield, making it one of the highest yielding varieties we have seen to date. The yield results we saw this past season were phenomenal.”
In addition to the new SY Valda, Syngenta is offering eight other AgriPro brand hard red spring wheat varieties in 2016: SY Ingmar, SY Rowyn, SY Soren, SY Tyra, SY605 CL, Kelby, Jenna, and Brennan.
Syngenta reminds farmers to have a good, integrated plan and good planting practices from the beginning of the wheat growing season. Planting quality seeds and incorporating good seed treatments throughout the season, including using insecticides and fungicides like CruiserMaxx Vibrance Cereals which start protecting plants as soon as seeds are planted.
