DuPont Pioneer recently announced its 2016 corn lineup  that offers Iowa growers traits and genetics that, when combined with seed treatments and services, provide the total package for on-farm performance. 
Many of the products available in 2016 demonstrated impressive results in the 2015 season in the state, and all are locally tested and selected for top performance in the Iowa's unique agronomic conditions.
Growers can further enhance yields and get crops off to a strong start by choosing hybrids featuring Pioneer Premium Seed Treatment (PPST) 250 offering plus DuPont Lumivia insecticide seed treatment, which is exclusively available on newer Pioneer brand corn products.
Lumivia insecticide seed treatment provides increased protection from early-season insect pests. On-farm trials showed the addition of Lumivia insecticide seed treatment to PPST 250 offering increased corn yields by an average of 2.5 bushels per acre.
Iowa corn platform highlight
While a wide variety of genetic platforms and trait packages are offered across the state of Iowa for 2016, a core group of products have demonstrated significant success in the state. These and many other products are widely available for planting this spring throughout Iowa. Growers using Pioneer brand corn products won two national and eight state titles in the 2015 National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) yield contest. 
The Pioneer brand P1197 corn family of products is a yield leader across most of the Corn Belt, providing growers with industry-leading yields and dependable agronomics under most growing conditions. It is a high performance family adapted both north and south of its 111 maturity rating.
Doug Bowen of Malvern, Iowa won third place in the No-Till/Strip Till Non-Irrigated category in the 2015 NCGA Yield Contest in Iowa using P1197AM, and Roy and Todd Folkerts placed second and third respectively in the No-Till/Strip-Till Irrigated category of the 2015 NCGA Yield Contest in Iowa using the platform. Matt Lorimor and Kim Dummermuth won second and third place in the Irrigated category of the 2015 NCGA Yield Contest in Iowa using P1197 products.
The Pioneer brand P0157 family provides excellent root strength in a 101 maturity rating. It is a Pioneer brand Optimum AQUAmax product with exceptional drought tolerance that will add stability across yield levels. Growers who used P0157 hybrids in 2015 saw an average yield advantage of seven bushels per acre, and the product is highly adopted in northern Iowa. 
The Pioneer brand P0506 family includes Optimum AQUAmax products that deliver yield stability across a variety of soil types in a 105 CRM. Growers who used P0506 products in 2015 saw an average yield advantage of six bushels per acre. 
The Pioneer brand P0825 family provides industry-leading yield potential in 108 CRM. It offers strong drought tolerance, stress emergence and stalk performance characteristics, and is available with Pioneer brand Optimum AcreMax XTreme product traits. The 2015 yield advantage for growers who used P0825 products was ten bushels per acre. 
The Pioneer brand P1311 family includes Optimum AcreMax XTreme products in 113 CRM that provide maximum yield potential and sound agronomics. It has particularly strong rate of moisture loss during grain drydown and taller plant height characteristics. 
Pioneer develops its corn hybrid line through rigorous testing and on-farm trials. Growers who select Pioneer brand corn products will find solutions that help them address their unique challenges, local conditions and individual goals.
Pioneer continues to invest in products that will help growers gain more yield advantage, including Pioneer brand Qrome products. Qrome products will offer pyramided insect protection and strong agronomics across a wide range of corn hybrid platforms to deliver improved yields for growers. Qrome products demonstrated strong performance in IMPACT research trials in 2015; testing will continue in 2016.
