Most of Mycogen Seeds’ soybean varieties are now SCN resistant, according to John Kalthoff, Mycogen. “We have only a handful that are not,” he adds. For 2012, the company is introducing 10 new SCN-resistant varieties out of 15 new soybean lines. A Dow AgroSciences’ company, Mycogen introduced 20 new SCN-resistant varieties out of 31 new soybean lines for 2012.
“Almost anything we have in Mid Group I or later maturities are SCN resistant,” says Kalthoff. “In 2013, we’re introducing a lot of new early-maturity soybeans.”
