SOYBEANS Performance, service and better weed control options Growing a great soybean crop demands that growers plant the right variety, control weeds effectively and manage the threat of herbicide resistance. That’s why you should choose Pioneer® brand soybeans with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ technology. Performance and service Pioneer® brand soybeans with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ technology have been proven in local trials to ensure they provide the yield and agronomics that growers need. Only DuPont Pioneer can deliver the total package of high-performing genetics, dedicated service and agronomic support and superior weed control options.

Here are three ideas to keep in mind when growing Pioneer® brand Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ soybeans: Use only a reduced volatility product such as DuPont™ FeXapan™ plus VaporGrip™ Technology. Review and implement the requirements for dicamba stewardship shown on the label. Use combinations of different herbicide groups in each pass within the same year. For glyphosate- resistant weeds, herbicide programs will require an additional mode of action with dicamba for effective resistance management. Manage weeds for the long term to avoid the buildup of resistant weeds on your farm. As with all crop protection products, read and follow label instructions carefully.

1 Tips for success Take care with dicamba Layer modes of action Herbicide Resistance Management Strategy Better weed control options DuPont Crop Protection is pleased to offer DuPont™ FeXapan™ herbicide plus VaporGrip™ Technology.

Incorporating this low-volatile dicamba into your weed management system on Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ soybeans will help manage glyphosate-resistant weeds. And when you use a combination of FeXapan™ plus VaporGrip™ Technology plus DuPont Crop Protection’s portfolio of soybean herbicides, you get better control of glyphosate-resistant weeds and other weeds that are hard to kill with a glyphosate-only strategy. You also help manage the threat of herbicide resistance.

3 CRM (Comparative Relative Maturity): There is not an industry standard for maturity ratings so comparing products maturity and harvest moisture ratings between companies is usually difficult.

Use the CRM rating to compare Pioneer® brand products with competitive hybrids of a similar maturity and harvest moisture. CRM ratings, and harvest moistures, for products within a family may vary slightly, depending upon the level of insect (ECB and CRW) infestation. Conventional and straight hybrids with the RR2 gene within a family will usually be 1-2 CRMs earlier than indicated, when insect infestations are moderate to heavy. One CRM difference is about ¹/² point of moisture difference at harvest. 4 PHYSIOLOGICAL CRM: Measures differences in maturity to zero milkline stage. To help decide if a new product fits your area’s growing season, compare its physiological CRM to a corn product that you plant or one that is successfully used in your area.

5 STRESS EMERGENCE: All corn products are expected to establish normal stands under average soil conditions. Stress emergence is a measure of the genetic ability or potential to emerge in the stressful environmental conditions of cold, wet soils or short periods of severe low temperatures, relative to other Pioneer® brand hybrids. Ratings of 7-9 indicate very good potential to establish normal stands under such conditions; a rating of 5-6 indicates average potential to establish normal stands under moderate stress conditions; and ratings of 1-4 indicate the hybrid has below average potential to establish normal stands under stress and should not be used if severe cold conditions are expected immediately after planting.

Stress emergence is not a rating for seedling disease susceptibility, early growth or speed of emergence. 6 DROUGHT TOLERANCE: Droughttoleranceisacomplextrait, determinedbyaplatform’sabilitytomaintainyieldinlimited-moisture environments.Ahigherscoreindicatesthepotentialforhigheryieldsvs. otherplatformsofsimilarmaturityinlimited-moistureenvironments. 7 GRAIN DRYDOWN: Compares corn products of a similar maturity for rate of kernel moisture loss after grain physiological maturity (zero kernel milkline). A lower score indicates slower drydown, possibly offering a wider opportunity for high-moisture grain harvest.

8 TEST WEIGHT: Higher score indicates heavier test weight. 9 PLANT HEIGHT: 9 = Very Tall; 1 = Short. 10 MID-SEASON BRITTLE STALK: Ratings determined by frequency and severity of stalk snappage at lower to middle stalk internodes from conditions usually favoured by rapid or optimum growth. Relative response of products can be affected by planting date, stage of growth, rate of growth, wind severity and other variables. Scores derived from both natural observations and artificial evaluation immediately prior to tasseling. NOTE: Scores do not reflect snappage enhanced by or due to herbicide interaction.

The use of growth regulator herbicides such as 2,4-D and dicamba can increase the brittle snap potential of corn products. Products with lower brittle stalk ratings will require more caution and have a higher risk associated with the use of growth regulator herbicides. Early application, proper rates and application methods, along with both hybrid and herbicide selection can help reduce this risk. BRITTLE STALK PRECAUTION: In areas with higher potential for brittle stalk breakage, growers must balance the risk of planting products with brittle stalk ratings of less than 4 against the overall performance of more resistant products with higher ratings.

All products have a period of susceptibility to brittle stalk. Products with below average ratings may have a longer period of susceptibility, or may experience more severe breakage relative to hybrids with higher scores during period of susceptibility.

DISEASE & PEST RESISTANCE FOOTNOTES: DISEASE PRECAUTION: Growers should balance corn product yield potential, maturity and cultural practice selection against their anticipated risk of a specific disease and need for resistance. In high disease-risk conditions, consider planting products with at least moderate resistance ratings of 4 or higher to help reduce risk. When susceptible products with disease ratings of 1 to 3 are planted in conditions of high disease pressure, the grower assumes a higher level of risk. If conditions are severe, even products rated as resistant can be adversely affected.

Independent of yield reduction, diseases can predispose plants to secondary diseases such as stalk rots. This requires individual field and product monitoring for stalk stability and timely harvest when warranted. DISEASE & PEST RATINGS: 6-7 = Resistant; 4-5 = Moderately Resistant; 1-3 = Susceptible; Blank = Insufficient Data. 11 NORTHERN LEAF BLIGHT CAUTION: In conditions where northern leaf blight (NLB) risk is high, growers should consider planting only products with at least moderate NLB resistance ratings of 4 or higher.

14 GREY LEAF SPOT PRECAUTION: Avoid planting products with a lower grey leaf spot (GLS) rating in continuous corn fields that have a history of GLS infection, unless tillage operations that bury significant amounts of corn residue and inoculum are practiced.

15 SILAGE CRM (Comparative Relative Maturity): With no industry standard for silage maturity, comparing maturity and harvest moisture among corn-for- silage hybrids is difficult. DuPont Pioneer silage CRM ratings provide a relative comparison among Pioneer hybrids of rates at which hybrids reach harvestable whole-plant moistures. It is on the same scale as the CRM rating provided for grain-corn hybrids and does not represent actual days from planting or emergence to harvest moisture or half milkline. 16 SILAGE YIELD: Based on tons/acre (adjusted to 30% dry matter) from multi-year comparison of products within a maturity range not exceeding 5 silage CRM units.

17 STARCH AND SUGAR, %: Percent starch and soluble sugars (DM basis) in the whole-plant sample predicted by NIRS. 18 WHOLE-PLANT DIGESTIBILITY: Based on estimated 24-hour in vitro whole-plant digestibility percentage (dry matter basis), as predicted by Near Infrared Reflectance Spectroscopy (NIRS). 19 FIBRE DIGESTIBILITY: Based on 24-hour enzymatic estimate of percent degradable neutral detergent fibre (NDF) as a percent of total NDF in whole-plant sample, predicted by NIRS. 20 SILAGE CRUDE PROTEIN: Based on the amount of crude protein in the whole plant, predicted by NIRS. 21 MILK OR BEEF PER ACRE: 9 = Outstanding; 1 = Poor.

HERBICIDE-PRODUCT MANAGEMENT GUIDE: Under certain environmental conditions any corn product can be injured by any herbicide. This guide can assist in selecting and managing herbicide programs. It is based on replicated research trials and field observations. See your Pioneer sales representative or herbicide representative regarding herbicide-product combinations that require careful management.

ADEQUATE TOLERANCE. With the particular hybrid, available research and/or field observations suggest this herbicide is unlikely to result in material crop injury under normal circumstances.

REQUIRES CAREFUL MANAGEMENT. With this particular hybrid, available research and or field observations suggest this herbicide may exhibit crop injury in challenging environments such as heavy rainfall during seed germination or seedling emergence, sandy soils, soils low in organic matter, high pH soils, or during periods of excessively cold, hot, dry or wet weather. University research indicates products within a herbicide class may vary in their degree of crop selectivity. The potential for herbicide interaction may also be impacted by the labeled herbicide rate used and the method or timing of application.

CROP RESPONSE WARNING. With this hybrid in field observations and/or research, crop injury has occurred with this herbicide. INSUFFICIENT DATA. Additionaltestingisneededtoevaluatethishybrid. 23 AMIDE (Chloroacetamide and Others) tested was Harness (registered in the United States). This family also includes Dual II Magnum, Axiom, DuPont™ Battalion® , Frontier and others in pre-packaged mixes. 24 BENZOIC ACID (Synthetic Auxins) tested was Banvel. The Phenoxy family includes 2,4-D. The rating represents these products and others in pre-packaged mixes. Products may exhibit greater early season stalk breakage when Benzoic Acid or Phenoxy herbicides are applied prior to a significant windstorm.

25 ISOXAZOLE (4-HPPD Inhibitors) tested was Balance Pro (registered in the United States; registered under the brand name Converge in Canada). The herbicide prevents the biosynthesis of a photosynthetic pigment (carotenoid). The carotenoid pigment prevents the degradation of chlorophyll. Susceptible plant will turn white and chlorotic.

26 SU (sulfonylureas, ALS Inhibitors) tested was Option, unsafened DuPontTM Basis Gold® , Resolve® or DuPontTM Steadfast® (registered in the United States). This family also includes DuPontTM Accent® , Elim, and others in pre-packaged mixes. A similar family called sulfonanilides includes Fieldstar.

Growers should evaluate data from multiple locations and years whenever possible. = Variety does not contain a herbicide resistant gene. LL — Contains the LibertyLink® gene for resistance to Liberty® herbicide. Liberty® , LibertyLink® and the Water Droplet Design are trademarks of Bayer.

2 SCN RESISTANCE SOURCE: There are three sources of genetic resistance to SCN currently deployed in the marketplace: PI88788; PI548402 (also known as Peking); and PI437654 (also known as Hartwig); R = Resistant 3 RELATIVE MATURITY: Shows the relative maturity group rating, with the first digit representing the general maturity group, and the second digit showing relative maturity within the group on a scale of 0 to 9, with 0 early and 9 late. For example, a soybean variety with a relative maturity rating of 17 would be a mid-late variety in Group I maturity.

4 FIELD EMERGENCE: Rating based on speed and strength of emergence in sub-optimal temperatures. 7-9 = Excellent; 4-6 = Average. 5 PHYTOPHTHORA RESISTANCE GENE: = No specific gene for resistance. 1a = Provides resistance to races 1-2, 10-11, 13-18, 24. 1c = Provides resistance to races 1-3, 6-11, 13, 15, 17, 21, 23, 24, 26, 28-30, 32, 34, 36. 1k = Provides resistance to races 1-11, 13-15, 17, 18, 21-24, 26, 36, 37. 6 = Provides resistance to races 1-4, 10, 12, 14-16, 18-21, 25, 28, 33-35. 6 PHYTOPHTHORA FIELD TOLERANCE: Varieties with high tolerance scores have demonstrated an ability to thrive in the presence of Phytophthora races to which they lack specific resistance.

In some varieties, tolerance is expressed only after the early seedling growth stage, making such varieties susceptible to damping off during emergence and early seed growth. 7 SOYBEAN CYST NEMATODE [SCN]: Resistance to each of the major SCN races is scored on a 1-9 scale. 9 = Excellent resistance; 8-7 = Very good resistance; 4 = Below average resistance; 3-2 = Susceptible; 1 = Highly susceptible; to the specific race indicated.

8 APHID ANTIBIOSIS: A type of resistance that measures the plant’s ability to naturally reduce the rate of growth, survival and reproduction of soybean aphids on soybean plants. Antibiosis is measured by comparing the rate of aphid reproduction on different varieties. Since no varieties currently on the market offer complete resistance to aphids, growers should use these antibiosis ratings as a pest management tool (not a variety selection tool) to help determine field scouting and insecticide application priorities. E = exceptional; AA = above average; A = average antibiosis ratings; BA = below average antibiosis rating.

For example, varieties with exceptional ratings display much lower aphid reproduction compared to varieties with average and below average ratings.

9 WHITE MOULD: Scores based on Pioneer research observations of comparative white mould tolerance among various soybean varieties across multiple locations and years. All varieties are capable of developing white mould symptoms under severe infestations. To our knowledge, there are no totally resistant varieties in the industry. However, differences exist in the ability of varieties to tolerate white mould (i.e., the rate at which the infection develops and the extent of damage it causes). These scores reflect those differences.

10 CANOPY WIDTH: 9 = Extremely bushy; 1 = Very narrow.

11 ANTI-SHATTERING: 9 = Excellent tolerance to shattering; 1 = Poor tolerance to shattering. 12 PLANT HEIGHT FOR MATURITY: 9 = Tall; 1 = Short. 13 PER CENT PROTEIN AT 13% MOISTURE: Compare data within table only. Values can vary widely by growing season and region. 14 PER CENT OIL AT 13% MOISTURE: Compare data within table only. Values can vary widely by growing season and region. 15 HILA COLOUR: BL = Black; BR = Brown; G = Grey; IB = Imperfect black; TN = Tan; BF = Buff; Y = Yellow (Clear). 16 SEED SIZE RANGE: Expressed in seeds per pound under normal growing conditions. Range is calculated over multiple years and locations.

Since seed size may vary by growing season and region, check the “seeds/pound” information printed on the bag.
