Across the Z-series soybean, there is a 2.7 bushel advantage

February 28, 2024

When it comes to growing soybeans, growers are looking for every advantage they can find. That may come in the form of disease tolerance, flexibility in spray timing and of course in yield potential. But when all of those options become available in one bean, it's worth taking a close look. That's what the new Z-Series soybeans offer from Pioneer® brand seed. In this episode, Andrew talks with Corteva Agriscience soybean breeder Evelyn Valera-Rojas, Pioneer's Portfolio Marketing Manager Chad Garrod, and he even pulled Pioneer Agronomist Dave Harwood out of retirement to learn what the possibilities are and learn how growers can see the soybeans for themselves in 2024.

"Ask yourself - What can I do better in 2024?"

December 22, 2023

Tis the season to be - optimistic! In our annual Year in Review episode, that's exactly what Andrew is thinking as he checks in with Pioneer Area Agronomists Paul Hermans and Greg Stopps. After all, farmers know there are always ways to improve to have a more successful year in the next growing season and heading into 2024 is no different. In this episode, the three talk about what growers in Ontario took away from planting conditions in the spring, wet conditions that brought significant disease pressure in the summer, and how surprised some growers were with yields in the fall. It's all about learning from past experiences to be even better moving forward.
