Varsity Performance and 2021 Opportunities

BY ROD MORAN, SOYBEAN LEADER

2020 is in the review mirror allowing us to highlight several soybean lines carrying major roles in our 2021-22 planting portfolio.  While these seven different lines demonstrate very notable performance and genetic diversity in F.I.R.S.T. and University results, these 39 top ten finishes help showcase the ability of our Enlist E3® soybean portfolio.  (See table at the end of this article.)

You have consistently conveyed that the data you trust, more than any other, is data generated in your fields under your environmental conditions.  This year, thanks to your efforts, we generated nearly 150 unique plot locations in our dealer network, and we would like to see that number double or even triple into the future (see map below).  These locations represent dealer-generated data only and not those from University or FIRST pools.

Combining all appropriate yield data sources allows for improved evaluation and better placement for which we are grateful.  With that appreciation in mind, we humbly ask you to increase your plot efforts to generate further data helping us drive more comprehensive data evaluation which is the lifeblood of a successful breeding program.  If given the opportunity, encourage others to put in a small plot or side-by-side comparison to help us improve and learn.  Work with your DSM, RSM, and/or Regional Agronomist to ensure that the plot seed and its valuable harvest data is captured and loaded into the system.  There is no doubt that we all learn better when we learn together.

Stay healthy, safe, and positive as we venture into the upcoming growing season!
