What’s new in soybean varieties for 2017?

Last year, the big news in soybean varieties could be summed up in one technological term: Xtend, which became part of the fall lineup for many of the seed companies. Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show was abuzz with talk about Xtend, with demonstration plots aplenty, and all sorts of signage promoting the new system’s platform, Roundup Ready 2 Xtend.

If there was one slight drawback, it was that many of the varieties that were promoted came with an asterisk denoting pending registration.

This fall is different. Xtend is obviously still a force in the industry, but many of the companies are focused this year on disease and pest packages, including soybean cyst nematode (SCN) and white mould, both of which are garnering increasing attention in parts of eastern Ontario.

Management of soybeans is getting more attention, and today’s varieties must compete on technology, disease resistance, agronomics and plant characteristics.

In all, 10 companies are participating in our list of new technologies and new varieties for the 2017 growing season, featuring more than 75 new arrivals (some are varieties with very limited release in 2016). And you know the drill. Don’t take our word for it. It’s important to discuss your seed and cropping decisions with your dealer, agronomist or seed company representative.

Bayer CropScience

LibertyLink — Using the LibertyLink soybean system helps manage glyphosate -resistant weeds. By rotating to the LibertyLink soybean system, the company says you get high-performing genetics coupled with powerful, non-selective weed control on glyphosate-resistant and tough-to-manage weeds, along with effective resistance management, since Liberty is the only herbicide with a Group 10 mode of action.

Balance GT — The Balance GT Soybean Performance System was developed through collaboration between MS Technologies and Bayer CropScience. Created using high-yielding, elite soybean genetics, Balance GT promises exceptional performance coupled with outstanding weed control.

Balance GT soybeans are tolerant to both glyphosate and isoxaflutole, the active ingredient in new Balance Bean herbicide. These two chemistries will ensure protection against a variety of weeds, with exceptional performance against both broadleaf weeds and grasses, including difficult-to-manage weeds such as eastern black nightshade, waterhemp and ragweed. Glypho­sate can be used to combat weeds on contact while Balance Bean herbicide, with its unique reactivation feature, will continue to provide control from application through canopy closure.

Balance GT soybeans will be the first step in a foundational system that will grow to include a triple-stacked herbicide-tolerant soybean, providing tolerance to glyphosate, Balance Bean and Liberty (glufosinate).
