Des Moines, Iowa (December 11, 2014)--DuPont Pioneer today announced its new class of Pioneer® brand T Series soybeans for the North American market. The new varieties lead a class of products that have been vigorously evaluated and selected to excel in the areas where they will be sold.
"The new varieties are the best of a class that has gone through broad-scale testing across a range of environments and weather conditions," said André Trépanier, DuPont Pioneer senior marketing manager for soybeans. "The new T Series varieties raise the bar on product performance and enhance our complete product line that farmers have learned to count on to deliver reliable yields year after year."
The new 2015 T Series lineup includes a variety of traits and agronomic characteristics to help meet the diverse needs of soybean growers across North America and expands Pioneer offerings of varieties with the Genuity® Roundup Ready 2Yield® trait. The new class contains 33 new products ranging in maturity from Relative Maturity (RM) 006 to RM 76, including one maturity group 6 variety and one maturity group 7 variety that expand the range of Pioneer products soybean growers need in the Deep South.
"For more than 25 years, more growers have chosen Pioneer soybeans over any other brand because they trust us to provide the best technology and genetics to produce and protect yields," Trépanier said. "We are constantly improving and testing our products' performance in the field to make sure that whatever a grower encounters, there is a Pioneer seed product, and a Pioneer expert, who can help him maximize profits and productivity."
Soybean lineup highlights
• Pioneer® brand T Series continued to deliver strong yields for many growers in 2014, including in areas with significant sudden death syndrome (SDS) pressure. The new introductions continue to improve Pioneer® brand T Series offerings across the heart of the corn and soybean belt.
• Pioneer is enhancing its lineup for growers in Canada and the northern United States with the introduction of four new group 0 and 00 varieties.
• The new lineup also contains three new Plenish® high oleic soybean varieties to provide growers even more options in the expanding high oleic soybean oil market.
"Our full range of Pioneer® brand soybean varieties delivered strong yield results for our customers in 2014," said Trépanier. "To maximize the return on their seed investment in 2015, growers should work closely with their Pioneer seed experts to build a plan that includes soybean products which are developed and tested to suit their unique management practices and operational goals."
Pioneer® brand soybean seed is backed by the global Pioneer team, as well as local experts. The team works with growers from seed selection to harvest to help identify the right seed and management practices to harness the full potential of their land. Pioneer® GrowingPoint® agronomy on-farm trials are conducted across North America to support growers in their efforts to improve production practices and increase yields. The impressive lineup of Pioneer Premium Seed Treatment (PPST) products for soybeans also helps growers get their soybeans off to a strong start against disease and insect pressures.
