Syngenta Seeds Introduces 17 New NK Soybean Products

NK® brand soybeans deliver exceptional yield potential and industry-leading disease protection

MINNETONKA, MINN. — February 22, 2011 — Syngenta Seeds, Inc., one of the world’s leading agricultural seed providers, has released 17 new NK brand soybean products, featuring more varieties with Syngenta’s Aphid Management System™ (AMS™). The new varieties, available in trial quantities for the 2011 growing season, provide growers with greater options to maximize yield under a variety of growing conditions and soil types.

“Syngenta has a growing portfolio of high-performance soybean varieties developed from our broad base of superior genetics  enabling us to offer growers the strongest soybean lineup in the industry,” said Tracy Mader, head of product marketing, Syngenta Seeds. “With an expanded offering of AMS varieties, growers will be able to better select varieties that match their needs and maximize their yields.”

The 17 new varieties include selections for relative maturities ranging from very early 0.2 to very late 7.4.

Two of the new products are AMS varieties, which is the industry’s first fully integrated option for soybean aphid control. The system combines Syngenta genetics with a trait for resistance to soybean aphids, along with Syngenta Crop Protection and Seedcare products to deliver complete, season-long protection. These products have relative maturities of 1.2 and 1.7 and will expand the AMS offerings to the northern reaches of the aphid problem area.

In addition, the new products deliver outstanding resistance packages to pests including Soybean Cyst Nematode and Root Knot Nematode, as well as excellent tolerance to diseases ranging from Phytophthora Root Rot, Sudden Death Syndrome, Iron Deficiency Chlorosis, Frogeye Leaf Spot, Brown Stem Rot to Southern Stem Canker tolerance.
