Corn and soybean growers will have an abundance of choice in preparation for next year. But it’s more than just sheer volume. In a market where every input counts, ‘decision ag’ tools like the R7® Tool will be able to show how environmental and agronomic variables affect performance of a given hybrid. This helps you decide which seed is best for you field, not just a seed that performed best nationally.
 
Placement strategy coupled with high-end yield potential embodies the 2017 CROPLAN® seed class, with a number of exciting product characteristics not previously available.
 
Soybeans
  • Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans offer newfound herbicide trait technology for versatile weed control. You will have your pick of 33 new Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybean offerings, as well as other high-yielding soybean genetics. Additionally, you will still have access to familiar cropping systems you have come to know and trust, including newer, higher-yielding varieties of Roundup Ready 2 Yield and LibertyLink® products.
  • WinPak® seed is comprised of a combination of offensive and defensive beans in similar maturities combined into one bag. Varieties paired in each WinPak® seed offering work together to buffer the effects of weather, soil and disease variability by protecting yield potential on tough acres while maximizing yield in higher producing areas of a field.
Corn
  • Sixteen new hybrids will be available for 2017 planting, each backed by extensive management-specific Answer Plot® program data.
  • SilageFirst™ seed is the newest category of high quality, high tonnage corn hybrids for exclusive use as silage, designed to meet the specific nutritional needs of dairy herds.
