How DuPont Pioneer Assigns Numbers to Products

 

Corn Hybrids Named Using Revised Numbering System

Numbering System Provides More Information
DuPont Pioneer revised its corn hybrid naming system for all new Pioneer® brand corn products introduced for the 2009 growing season. This numbering system is based on Pioneer identity, maturity, base genetics and trait identity. Hybrids available prior to 2009 kept their previously assigned numbers, in compliance with seed industry laws.

How the System Works
All new corn products begin with the letter P. The revised naming system streamlines corn hybrid designations under a "platform," or hybrid family name. The base genetic line, and all conversions that include any technology segments, share a common number.

Corn product numbering system example

Identifying Technologies in the Product Name
If a hybrid contains no technology segments, the name is a five-digit number. If the hybrid contains one or more technologies, these are designated by specific letters.

 BOLT   Glyphosate Tolerant   Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® Soybeans   LibertyLink®
DuPont™ STS®   Plenish®

Always follow stewardship practices in accordance with the Product Use Guide (PUG) or other product-specific stewardship requirements including grain marketing and pesticide label directions. Varieties with BOLT™ technology provide excellent plant-back flexibility for soybeans following application of SU (sulfonylurea) herbicides such as DuPont™ LeadOff® or DuPont™ Basis® Blend as a component of a burndown program or for double-crop soybeans following SU herbicides such as DuPont™ Finesse® applied to wheat the previous fall. DuPont™, LeadOff®, Basis® Blend and Finesse® are trademarks or registered trademarks of DuPont or its affiliates.

Always follow grain marketing, stewardship practices and pesticide label directions. 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. Genuity®, Roundup® and Roundup Ready 2 Yield® are 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.

Varieties with the LibertyLink® gene (LL) are resistant to Liberty® herbicide.
Liberty®, LibertyLink® and the Water Droplet Design are trademarks of Bayer.

Varieties with the DuPont™ STS® gene (STS) are tolerant to certain SU (sulfonylurea) herbicides. This technology allows post-emergent applications of DuPont™ Synchrony® XP and DuPont™ Classic® herbicides without crop injury or stress (see herbicide product labels). NOTE: A soybean variety with a herbicide tolerant trait does not confer tolerance to all herbicides. Spraying herbicides not labeled for a specific soybean variety will result in severe plant injury or plant death. Always read and follow herbicide label directions and precautions for use.
