Golden Harvest brings more choices to farmers, expands soybean portfolio with new trait technology

Share:

MINNEAPOLIS, USA, April 15, 2019 – Golden Harvest demonstrates its continued dedication to the local needs of farmers by expanding its soybean portfolio with the latest trait technology. By adding the new Enlist E3™ to its current portfolio – which already includes Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield®, Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® and Liberty Link® soybeans – Golden Harvest offers farmers access to more trait choices than almost any other seed company. In addition, the company is evaluating the LibertyLink GT27™ trait to offer even more choice.

“By pairing the latest trait technology with best-in-class genetics, farmers are better equipped to protect their yield potential against today’s toughest threats,” said Dennis Storm, Golden Harvest soybean product manager. “We are committed to meeting the local needs of our farmers across all the varying conditions throughout the Midwest. By adding Enlist E3 soybeans to our portfolio, we are even more confident in our ability to do so.”

Golden Harvest will have trials of Enlist E3 soybeans for the 2019 growing season, with broad commercial availability for 2020 planting. Enlist E3 soybeans offer advanced herbicide tolerance through three modes of action with tolerance to 2, 4-D choline, glyphosate and glufosinate. Having received Chinese import approval in January, the Enlist E3 trait technology will be available for 2020 planting in 30 Golden Harvest® soybean varieties.

“Year after year, we see superior performance from the Golden Harvest soybean portfolio,” said Storm. “We know farmers have a lot of options when it comes to where they buy their seed, which is why we continue to invest in their success. Giving farmers access to all the major soybean trait platforms is another way we can help them manage difficult weed spectrums, and increase their yield potential to effectively improve their profit potential.”

The breadth and quality of the Golden Harvest seed portfolio showcases the pledge of an incremental $400 million investment made in 2018. For 2019 spring planting, Golden Harvest has a strong portfolio of high-performing, strong-quality seeds that are still available. For the 2020 planting season, farmers can look forward to an expanded portfolio, which will include 17 new RR2 Xtend soybean varieties.

The Golden Harvest portfolio is available from Golden Harvest Seed Advisors, who combine high-yielding seed options with tailored field recommendations based on their local agronomic knowledge.
