Corn growers will have some more choices as DuPont Pioneer has released some new corn hybrids for 2015. This company news release says these locally advanced and tested products are designed to deliver yield consistency and help improve grower profitability in the coming season.
“A grower’s seed decision is central to achieving whole-farm profitability,” said Ryan French, DuPont Pioneer senior corn marketing manager. “Our sales representatives and local field staff are committed to working closely with growers to build a seed plan that brings together the right combination of genetics and traits to complement their management practices and overall operational goals.”
The 2015 line-up includes 48 new corn products ranging from 70 to 121 comparative relative maturity (CRM) and features 27 new genetic platforms with high-performing trait packages that have been locally tested to meet growers’ agronomic, environmental and management challenges. Pioneer conducted more than 1,300 corn IMPACT™ trials (Intensively Managed Product Advancement, Characterization and Testing) in 2014 to determine the right fit for new products in the pipeline across a wide range of geographies and growing conditions.
Extensive product and agronomic knowledge gained through the Pioneer® GrowingPoint® agronomy on-farm trials also helps growers improve production practices and increase yields. Trials take place across the country and examine both products and practices in a wide variety of growing conditions to help growers identify local solutions to the toughest agronomic and management practices they face.
Pioneer officials are also touting their Encirca services that gives producers important information, such as enhanced market and news services, field-by-field weather and a nitrogen management service to drive efficiency, productivity and profitability. In addition, select Pioneer brand corn products in the United States will feature DuPont Lumivia insecticide seed treatment in 2015 as part of the Pioneer Premium Seed Treatment (PPST) program.
