2016 Final Genetic Performance Overview

 

SOYBEANS

 

AG36X6 – 73% in the Top 3 and 100% in the top half (it’s the #1 variety in 36% of the plots it’s in) – looking very strong in all plots.  I haven’t seen this dominance since AG4034’s first year in plots.  This looks to be a bean that can go on any and every acre. 

 

AG4034 – 50% in the Top 3 and 73% in the top half – consistent--had another great year and will continue to be a great choice in the future.

 

AG3432 – 36% in the Top 3 and 77% in the top half –still a “go to” variety  We have not seen this one disappoint when it comes to yield ability.

 

AG39X7 – 29% in the Top 3 and 67% in the top half – great option for the fuller RM Xtend acre with very comparable yields to AG4034.  Place similarly to AG4034’s

 

AG32X7 – 29% in the Top 3 and 57% in the top half – great early RM Xtend option with yields comparable to AG3432’s.  KEEP THIS OFF OF BOTTOM GROUND

 

AG34X7 – 18% in the Top 3 and 50% in the top half – great mid RM Xtend option with yields comparable to AG3432’s, (but with a bit better standability).  Place similarly to AG3432’s

 

CORN

 

DKC70-27 – 73% in the Top 3 and 91% in the top half (it’s the #1 hybrid in 55% of the plots it’s in)  – total dominance in nearly all plots, (also shows tough acre strength).  Incredible plant health. 

 

DKC64-34 – 58% in the Top 3 and 89% in the top half – looking very strong in all plots, (even the challenging conditions plots).  Incredible plant health. 

 

DKC60-87 – 49% in the Top 3 and 83% in the top half – looking very strong in all plots.  Place this toward the higher yielding acre and let DKC61-55, DKC61-79, or DKC61-88 carry the load in the lower yield environments.  Better plant health than the rest of its RM range

 

DKC68-26 – 35% in the Top 3 and 68% in the top half – this was the incredibly dominant hybrid from last year’s plots.  Still looking great, but better products and a more stressful season kept it out of the top three this year.  Place on high fertility, better ground.
