Best-in-class IDC tolerance! Brown stem rot and soybean cyst nematode resistance! Great full field yielder.


This line will be a great fit on most acres; but for the well-drained, neutral pH ground, other varieties that don’t carry the defense this one has may pack more yield punch.


Place this as a late 00 to early 0 line. Fits well in the Red River Valley into northeastern MN especially with high pH soils and IDC pressure. Moves west into North Dakota with good plant height and stress tolerance.


The higher the number, the better the performance or rating.
