New Biotech Soybean Products Launched in North America

January 30, 2013

Soybean growers in North America will soon have additional high-yielding soybean products to choose from. The new line of soybean products (T series) was developed by DuPont Pioneer through their Accelerated Yield Technology (AYTTM). According to the developers, they employed environment-specific markers to optimize yields by geography. The technology also pinpoints native trait genes for better defensive trait protection and pest resistance.

Thirty two products are soybean cyst nematode resistant and 29 have a major Phytophthora-resistant gene. All products will be commercially available this year.
