Additional Information

Information About Scoring

IMPORTANT Trait rating scores provide key information useful inselection and management of Pioneer® brand products in your area. Information and ratings are based on comparisons with other Pioneer brand products, not competitive products. Information and scores are assigned by Pioneer Research Managers. Scores are based on period-of-years testing through 2017 harvest and were the latest available at time of printing. Some scores may change after 2018 harvest. Scores represent an average of performance data across areas of adaptation, multiple growing conditions, and a wide range of both climate and soil types, and may not predict future results. Individual product responses are variable and subject to a variety of environmental, disease and pest pressures. Please use this information as only one component of your product positioning decision. Refer to www.pioneer.com/Canada or contact a Pioneer sales representative for the latest and most complete listing of traits and scores for each Pioneer brand product.
Numeric Ratings 9 = Outstanding; 1 = Poor; Blank = Insufficient Data or variety not test for that particular trait. 
Herbicide Resistance

Varieties with the glyphosate tolerant trait (including those designated by the letter “R” in the product number) contain genes that confer tolerance to glyphosate herbicides. Glyphosate herbicides will kill crops that are not tolerant to glyphosate. Always follow grain marketing, stewardship practices and pesticide label directions. Varieties with the Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® (RR2Y) trait contain genes that confer tolerance to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup® brand agricultural herbicides. Roundup® brand agricultural herbicides will kill crops that are not tolerant to glyphosate. Varieties with Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ (RR2X) technology contain genes that confer tolerance to dicamba and glyphosate. Dicamba will kill crops that are not tolerant to dicamba. Genuity®, Roundup®, Roundup Ready 2 Yield® and Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ are trademarks or registered trademarks of Monsanto Technology LLC used under license. Individual results may vary, and performance may vary from location to location and from year to year. This result may not be an indicator of results you may obtain as local growing, soil and weather conditions may vary. Growers should evaluate data from multiple locations and years whenever possible. LL – Contains the LibertyLink® gene for resistance to Liberty® herbicide.  Liberty®, LibertyLink® and the Water Droplet are trademarks of Bayer.

(-) = Variety does not contain a herbicide resistant gene.

 

 

More Ratings

SCN Resistance Source There are three sources of genetic resistance to SCN currently deployed in the marketplace: PI88788; PI548402 (also known as Peking); and PI437654 (also known as Hartwig); R = Resistant
Relative Maturity Shows the relative maturity group rating, with the first digit representing the general maturity group, and the second digit showing relative maturity within the group on a scale of 0 to 9, with 0 early and 9 late. For example, a soybean variety with a relative maturity rating of 17 would be a mid-late variety in Group I maturity.
Field Emergence Rating based on speed and strength of emergence in sub-optimal temperatures. 7-9 = Excellent; 4-6 = Average; 1-3= Below Average.
Phytophthora Resistance Gene

(-) = No specific gene for resistance.

1a = Provides resistance to races 1-2, 10-11, 13-18, 24

1c = Provides resistance to races 1-3, 6-11, 13, 15, 17, 21, 23,

24, 26, 28-30, 32, 34, 36

1k = Provides resistance to races 1-11, 13-15, 17, 18, 21-24, 26, 36, 37

3a = Resistant to races 1-5, 8-9, 11, 13-14, 16, 18, 23, 25, 28-29,

31-35, 39-41, 43-45, 47-52, 54

6 = Provides resistance to races 1-4, 10, 12, 14-16, 18-21, 25, 28, 33-35

Phytophthora Field Tolerance Varieties with high tolerance scores have demonstrated an ability to thrive in the presence of Phytophthora races to which they lack specific resistance. In some varieties, tolerance is expressed only after the early seedling growth stage, making such varieties susceptible to damping off during emergence and early seed growth.
Soybean Cyst Nematode (SCN) Resistance to each of the major SCN races is scored on a 1-9 scale. 9-8 = Excellent resistance; 7 = Very good resistance; 6 = Good resistance; 5 = Average resistance; 4 = Below average resistance; 3-2 = Susceptible; 1 = Highly susceptible; to the specific race indicated.
Aphid Antibiosis A type of resistance that measures the plants’ ability to naturally reduce the rate of growth, survival and reproduction of soybean aphids on soybean plants. Antibiosis is measured by comparing the rate of aphid reproduction on different varieties. Since no varieties currently on the market offer complete resistance to aphids, growers should use these antibiosis ratings as a pest management tool (not a variety selection tool) to help determine field scouting and insecticide application priorities. E = Exceptional; AA = Above Average; A = Average; BA = Below Average antibiosis ratings. For example, varieties with exceptional ratings display much lower aphid  reproduction compared to varieties with average and below average ratings.
White Mould Scores based on Pioneer research observations of comparative white mould tolerance among various soybean varieties across multiple locations and years. All varieties are capable of developing white mould symptoms under severe infestations. To our knowledge, there are no totally resistant varieties in the industry. However, differences exist in the ability of varieties to tolerate white mould (i.e., the rate at which the infection develops and the extent of damage it causes). These scores reflect those differences.
Canopy Width 9 = Extremely Bushy; 1 = Very Narrow.
Anti-Shattering 9 = Excellent tolerance to shattering; 1 = Poor tolerance to shattering.
Plant Height for Maturity 9 = Tall; 1 = Short.
Per cent Protein at 13% Moisture Compare data within table only. Values can vary widely by growing season and region.
Per cent oil at 13% Moisture Compare data within table only. Values can vary widely by growing season and region.
Hila Colour BL = Black; BR = Brown; G = Grey; IB = Imperfect black; TN = Tan; BF = Buff; Y = Yellow (Clear).
Seed Size Range Expressed in seeds per pound under normal growing conditions. Range is calculated over multiple years and locations. Since seed size may vary by growing season and region, check the “seeds/pound” information printed on the bag.
