Data is based on average of 1,236 comparisons made in the Western U.S. for 2014-2016 as of Apr. 28, 2017. Comparisons are against Channel, Croplan, Dairyland, DeKalb, Golden Harvest, Masters Choice, Mycogen and NK Brand corn hybrids with similar maturity and DM content at harvest, unless otherwise stated, and within +/-5 RM of the competitive brand. Product responses are variable and subject to any number of environmental, disease and pest pressures. Individual results may vary. Multi-year and multi-location data are a better predictor of future performance. Caution should be used when making hybrid decisions based on single/limited plot comparisons. A minimum of 20 side-by-side hybrid comparisons is required for valid yield and nutritional comparisons.
DO NOT USE THIS OR ANY OTHER DATA FROM A LIMITED NUMBER OF TRIALS AS A SIGNIFICANT FACTOR IN PRODUCT SELECTION. Refer to www.pioneer.com/products or contact a Pioneer sales representative or authorized dealer for the latest and complete listing of traits and scores for each Pioneer® brand product.
