The Right Genetics

Different soybeans genetics are best suited for different situations.  Understanding these differences is key to selecting the best product for your fields. Some varieties have strong defensive traits including: soybean cyst nematode resistance, disease resistance, iron deficiency chlorosis tolerance, and stress tolerance. Other varieties are more offensive and excel in better soils and agronomic conditions. The CROPLAN® soybean seed lineup includes industry-leading genetics to match many types of field situations.

Select The Right Growth-Habit Type

Soybeans are classified as having one of three types of growth habits: determinate, semi-determinate or indeterminate. Stem elongation and flowering time determine the growth habit type.

  • Determinate varieties do not get appreciably taller after flowering begins, and flowering lasts for a shorter period.
  • Semideterminate types have intermediate growth with only a modest increase in height occurring after the onset of flowering.
  • Indeterminate varieties have stems that continue to elongate after the initiation of flowering. This type may double or even triple in height after flowering.
