Additional Information

Information About Scoring


Trait ratings provide key information useful in selection and management of Pioneer® brand products in your area. Scores are based on period-of-years testing through 2020 harvest and were the latest available at time of printing. Some scores may change after 2021 harvest. Contact your Pioneer sales professional before planting for the latest trait rating information. Information and ratings are based on comparisons with other Pioneer brand products, not competitive products. Information and ratings are assigned by Pioneer Agronomists and Research Managers, based on average performance across area of adaptation under normal conditions, over a wide range of both climate and soil types, and may not predict future results. Product responses are variable and subject to any number of environmental, disease and pest pressures. Please use this information as only part of your product positioning decision. Refer to or contact a Pioneer sales professional for the latest and most complete listing of traits and scores for each Pioneer brand product and for product placement and management suggestions specific to your operation and local conditions.

Herbicide Tolerant Trait

Hybrids and varieties with the Roundup Ready® gene (RR) are tolerant to labeled rates of Roundup® branded herbicides. This technology allows for post-emergent applications of Roundup without crop injury or stress (see herbicide label). Labeled Roundup herbicide should only be used over the top of those hybrids and varieties that carry the Roundup Ready designation. Roundup Ready® and Roundup® are registered trademarks used under license from Monsanto Company. Hybrids and varieties with the CLEARFIELD® trait (CL) are tolerant to labeled rates of Ares™ SN and Amity™ WDG herbicides. This technology allows for post-emergent applications of these herbicides without crop injury or stress (see herbicide label). Labeled herbicides should only be used over the top of those hybrids and varieties that contain the CLEARFIELD trait. Liberty®, LibertyLink® and the Water Droplet Design are trademarks of BASF
