SOYBEANS 4 2018 VARIETIES Soybean Chart Key Relative Maturity First number indicates maturity group, second set of numbers indicates within-group maturity rating on a 000–9 scale (000 = Early, 9 = Late). Agronomic and Disease Ratings 1 = Excellent 9 = Poor – = Under Evaluation Canopy/Plant Type T = Thin, MT = Medium Thin, M = Medium, MB = Medium Bush, B = Bush Plant Height S = Short, MS = Medium Short, M = Medium, MT = Medium Tall, T = Tall Colour Abbreviations BF = Buff, BR = Brown, BL = Black, GR = Grey, IMB = Imperfect Black, IMY = Imperfect Yellow, LGR = Light Grey, LTW = Light Tawny, PUR = Purple, TN = Tan, TW = Tawny, WH = White, Y = Yellow Resistance Rating System Indicates when a variety is resistant to a specific disease or pest.

For varieties with soybean cyst nematode (SCN) resistance, it is specified which races of nematodes the line is resistant to. In the case of Phytophthora, it indicates the gene conveying the resistance. Phytophthora Race Resistance The following information correlates gene resistance to the actual races of Phytophthora the plant is protected from: Rps1a = Resistant to races 1, 2, 10, 11, 13–18, 24, 26, 27, 31, 32, 36, 38 Rps1c = Resistant to races 1–3, 6–11, 13, 15, 17, 21, 23, 24, 26, 28–30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 44 Rps1k = Resistant to races 1–11, 13–15, 17, 18, 21–24, 26, 36–38, 44 Rps3a = Resistant to races 1–5, 8, 9, 11, 13, 14, 16, 18, 23, 25, 28, 29, 31–35, 39, 44, 45 Rps6 = Resistant to races 1–4, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14–16, 18–21, 25, 28, 33–35, 38, 39, 44, 45 Phytophthora Field Tolerance Usually not as complete as race-specific resistance, but it offers general protection.

Resistance is not expressed in early stages of plant development. Numerical rating scale of 1  – 9; 1 = Excellent, 9 = Poor.

With Chinese import approval, farmers have access to this market for both corn grain and processing byproducts like dried distillers grain (DDGs).

Unsurpassed control of broad lepidopteran pests and corn borer with two modes of action and integrated E-Z Refuge® .

Tolerant to glyphosate. Protection against 14 key yield-robbing insects. This trait stack provides tolerance to glyphosate and glufosinate. Excellent control of above-ground insects where corn rootworm is not a key problem. This trait stack provides tolerance to glyphosate and glufosinate. An integrated, single-bag refuge trait stack that offers two modes of action against corn borer and corn rootworm. Tolerant to glyphosate.

Hybrids containing Agrisure® 3120 feature a 5% blended refuge in the bag for the convenience of automatic refuge compliance. This trait provides two modes of action against above-ground pests and glyphosate tolerance. Includes scientifically selected genes for water optimization and drought tolerance. It maximizes yield when it rains and increases yield up to 15% when it doesn’t. Tolerant to glyphosate. Season-long protection from European corn borer with both glyphosate and glufosinate tolerance. Provides tolerance to glyphosate. An excellent choice for refuge acres when not using Agrisure E-Z Refuge.

Seed products with the LibertyLink ® (LL) trait are resistant to the herbicide glufosinate ammonium, an alternative to glyphosate in corn, and combine high-yielding genetics with the powerful, non-selective, post-emergent weed control of Liberty® herbicides for optimum yield and excellent weed control.

18 CORN 2018 HYBRIDS The Agrisure Naming System To convey the characteristics of the various Agrisure trait stacks, we’ve created a consistent, straightforward naming system. Master Brand: Agrisure Brand Suffix: Changes as new technologies are introduced Technology Series: The first number in the trait name indicates the technology series Insect control traits: The next three numbers indicate how many modes of action are included in the trait stack to control each of the listed insects.

1) broad lepidopteran 2) corn borer 3) rootworm control Artesian: An “A” indicates the presence of the Agrisure Artesian trait. E-Z Refuge: Indicates products which contain 5% hybrid seed without insect control traits, simplifying refuge compliance as specified by the CFIA for managing insect resistance.

  • Example: A corn hybrid with the Agrisure Viptera 3122A trait stack features one mode of action on broad lepidopterans, two modes of action on corn borer and two modes of action on corn rootworm. The name also tells you that this hybrid has Agrisure Artesian technology and integrated single-bag refuge.

Protect Your Seed

30 AGRONOMY The Value of Seed Applied Insecticides Seed Applied Insecticides (SAIs) represent one of the most advanced forms of crop protection technology available, offering growers a targeted, environmentally sustainable means of pest management. Applied directly to the seed only where needed, SAIs require less active ingredient per acre compared to foliar and soil-applied pesticides, and minimize off-target drift, reducing the impact on non-target organisms. For growers who require a fungicide-only seed treatment, NK® soybean seed is available treated with Vibrance Maxx seed treatment, while NK corn is available treated with Maxim Quattro seed treatment.

Protecting Pollinators on the Farm Syngenta is committed to protecting pollinators and continues work to develop and implement additional solutions to address dust generated when planting treated corn and soybean seeds and to further efforts on other bee health issues.

Best Management Practices for the handling of seed treated with an insecticide are an important tool to help maximize the benefits of seed treatments and protect bees and other non-target insects at the same time. For more information, please visit beehealth.ca Always read and follow label directions.

31 STEWARDSHIP For more information, contact your Syngenta Representative, our Customer Interaction Centre at 1-87-SYNGENTA (1-877-964-3682) or visit Syngenta.ca Syngenta Stewardship Best Management Practices The best way for growers to preserve the benefits and insect protection of Bt technology is to incorporate Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategies on their farm.

These strategies play a key role in managing pest resistance. Successful management of resistance in turn benefits the grower through higher quality production. IPM strategies include planting refuge, crop and trait rotation, scouting, and use of chemical insecticides. Bt corn must have a refuge, as mandated by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Insect refuge management is a strategy endorsed by leading scientists to reduce the risk of insect populations developing resistance to Bt corn. All growers must sign a Syngenta Stewardship Agreement before ordering any Agrisure insect-protected corn for the 2017/2018 sales season, and continue to support the best management practices to reduce the potential risk of developing resistance to either the European corn borer (ECB) or corn rootworm (CRW) traits.

Failure to comply with refuge requirements may:
  • Lead to insect resistance
  • Slow down the introduction of new corn technologies that provide additional insect protection
  • Affect grower access to Agrisure traited products Scouting is essential! Scout refuge plantings to determine the level of insect pressure in your field. Then scout the Agrisure insect-protected hybrids to note their effectiveness and look for signs of damage that may indicate resistance to either the Bt trait or the CRW trait. If concerns arise, please contact your local Syngenta Agronomic Sales Representative immediately for further field investigation. Corn Refuge Requirement It is important to recognize that different products may have different Insect Resistance Management (IRM) requirements. On-farm mixing of any seed is not an approved method. Syngenta is pleased to provide hybrids with E-Z Refuge® for built-in compliance.

PRODUCT MINIMUM REFUGE SIZE REQUIREMENT REFUGE DISTANCE REQUIREMENTS 5% appropriate refuge material blended into the bag E-Z Refuge 20% (Corn Borer/Corn Root Worm) Adjacent to or within Bt field 20% (Corn Borer) Adjacent to, within, or up to 400m from the Bt field Any of the above trait versions available in water-optimizing Agrisure Artesian® option would not change the refuge requirements. NOTE: Crops or other material produced from Agrisure corn traits products can only be exported to, used, processed and/or sold in countries where all necessary regulatory approvals have been granted.

Syngenta is committed to stewardship of offered technologies and requires Syngenta Stewardship Agreements from growers.

The agreement outlines the terms under which a grower may grow and market the technologies sourced from Syngenta. Agrisure® corn, Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybean, Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybean and specified conventional soybean seed will be delivered only to growers with valid agreements.
