Long-Time Grower Finds Never Before Seen Yields with NK Soybeans

October 10, 2016

Raymond, NE: In 35 years of farming, Kurt Schachenmeyer has never averaged 70 bu/A across all his soybean acres. NK® Soybeans got him over the hump.

In 2015, his fifth season growing NK Soybeans, Schachenmeyer turned to NK Soybeans S34-N3 brand, a widely adapted medium-bush plant with excellent stress tolerance. It met the top qualities he said he looks for in beans – standability and yield – and it definitely didn’t let him down. After averaging more than 70 bu/A last year, Schachenmeyer planted it in 100 percent of his fields this year.

His harvest is only just beginning, but in the one field he’d combined so far, the monitor showed 68 bu/A – another promising start. Stay that way, he said, and he’ll probably go all in on S34-N3 brand yet again in 2017.


NK Soybeans S34-N3 brand’s high yields and excellent standability have translated to new yield averages for longtime grower Kurt Schachenmeyer.
