Field-Proven Precision Breeding
Our large, field-proven precision breeding program thoroughly evaluates products based on the latest science and uses extensive field testing to help increase yield potential and minimize risk.
It all starts with plant breeding. Germplasm is the building block for better products. When beginning the breeding process, we start with a large genetic pool of possible products, narrow them down in less time, and test more high-potential top performers in fields like yours.
In this phase, we begin selecting the products to undergo local testing. We use local breeding and technology development plots to understand early product potential and determine which products perform best under differing agronomic conditions.
With assistance from our Specialty Hybrids technical agronomists, we select a handful of products to test in Specialty Hybrids™ trials. Before a product is brought to market, we test and monitor them across hundreds of field scenarios in your local area.
Adding to the Specialty Hybrids™ Product Lineup
After local testing, our technical agronomists select the products that performed the best across the area we serve. These products are introduced each year into our product lineup.
Local and Data-Supported Solutions
Just over 10 years ago, we launched the Specialty Hybrids™ Green Light program. It gives you highly detailed performance data that’s specific to your area. Within the program, our products undergo multiple trials in a variety of conditions. We then work with independent researchers who provide third-party insights, ensuring we provide truly proven recommendations that optimize your field’s performance.
"My Specialty Hybrids™ soybeans have consistently been my best beans for yield, but my favorite thing has been exceptional stand and disease resistance. I’ve never had a field of Specialty Hybrids soybeans I’ve been disappointed in."
