Record Number of Farmers Celebrate 100 Bushel Soybeans
USAgNet - 11/08/2018

Pioneer brand A-Series soybean growers set a new Pioneer record for 100 bu/A yields in 2018. The elusive 100-bushel yield ceiling was broken more than 50 times in on-farm trials across the United States. The previous record was set in 2016 when 15 Pioneer brand varieties broke the 100-bushel mark in on-farm plots.

"The investments we have been making in soybean R&D are helping more growers than ever break the 100-bushel bean mark," said Judd O'Connor, President, U.S. Commercial Business, Corteva Agriscience, Agriculture Division of DowDuPont. "No matter the location, growing environment or maturity, A-Series soybeans are helping soybean growers across the country consistently improve their yield and profit potential, even with the challenging weather conditions growers experienced this season."

In nearly 5,000 on-farm comparisons in 2018, the top 40 Pioneer brand soybean varieties by volume showed a 2.6 bu/A average yield advantage over competitive varieties, winning 66 percent of the time.
