Yield is one of the most important factors to consider when it comes to soybean selection for the coming growing season. But it shouldn’t be the only factor you consider.
Listen below as Asgrow Product Manager Tyler Uhe and Brownfield Ag News discuss selecting the right soybean system for your farm and the new lineup of Asgrow® Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans.
Selecting for Success
Looking beyond yield alone, when selecting a soybean system, you have to consider factors such as weed pressure, field history, the type of farming practices used in your operation, and choosing seed that has an herbicide program tailored for your fields.
Weeds are one of the largest yield challenges farmers face. So using a program that gives you flexibility in chemical application is paramount. “Using a program like the Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System provides an effective use of chemistries throughout the season that offer flexibility in chemical application,” says Asgrow Product Manager Tyler Uhe.
While you can plan for what weeds you think you’ll need to treat for during the season, Uhe reminds us that some seasons are just unpredictable. But with the right crop system, you can be better prepared. “In a year like this and a spring where we needed to make some end of the season adjustments, the Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System proved to be extremely effective.”
Introducing the 2020 Lineup
Each season seems to bring new challenges for farmers. And each season, Asgrow works to develop new products to conquer those challenges and offer excellent yield potential.
For the 2020 growing season, Asgrow is adding 26 new products to their lineup. These products were selected from a robust breeding pipeline with yield potential weighing heavily on deciding each variety’s field readiness. Additionally, these new products were selected for their improved disease tolerance, including white mold which seemed to impact a lot of farms in different regions this past season.
Learning From Last Season
The year 2019 was a challenging season. Yield results were extremely variable and affected by planting conditions, planting date and a host of other factors. But one thing is certain: The Asgrow® lineup has tremendous yield advantages across all geographies.
