This is the final in a series of four posts highlighting key insights from 2016 Answer Plot® field data and trials.
 
Every season brings its share of challenges, old and new. As a result, you want the confidence of knowing that the seeds you plant can meet those challenges. Putting the right seed in the right soil is the first step in achieving genetic yield potential and reducing risk.
 
Using our Answer Plot® testing protocol, WinField United identifies the management strategies needed to reach maximum yield potential for our CROPLAN® seed brand. From soil type and disease risk to crop rotation and response to nutrient applications, extensive replicated testing measures yield based on a variety of inputs and environmental factors.
 
During 2016 Answer Plot® trials, we used applied science to analyze and compare statistical data from CROPLAN® seed against products from our key competitors. The results showed that CROPLAN® corn hybrids and soybean varieties outperformed them.
 
At 135 Answer Plot® locations in 20 states, CROPLAN® corn hybrids outperformed the key competitor with a yield advantage ranging from 8.7 bushels per acre in western states to 10.7 bushels per acre in northern states.  


At 116 Answer Plot® locations in 16 states, CROPLAN® soybean varieties outperformed the key competitor with a yield advantage ranging from 1.5 bushels per acre in western states to 3.3 bushels per acre in northern states.
