Switch in Brand Loyalty Pays Off in Yield
New Richmond, WI: After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls a decade ago, Justin Gillis returned home to his Pioneer®-loyal family farm. It didn’t take long, though, for price and competitive performance to make Gillis consider something new. He introduced his family to NK® Soybeans seven years ago, and today, is as committed to NK as they come.
“The stand of my NK Soybeans stays good – better than Pioneer. The Pioneer varieties were tougher to get through the combine,” Gillis said.
The addition of Syngenta products like CruiserMaxx® Beans with Vibrance® seed treatment, a combination of separately registered products, has only improved his opinion.
“It seems soybeans either get off to a strong start or struggle from the beginning. My NK Soybeans came up really nice this year, probably because of the CruiserMaxx Beans with Vibrance seed treatment I used,” Gillis said.
With the insecticide/fungicide seed treatment shielding his soybeans’ genetic potential, Gillis was able to get the most out of his acres while others struggled.
“It was hard to reach 60 bu/A because it’s been wet – really wet – around here this season. But NK Soybeans S10-P9 brand did,” he said.
NK Soybean S10-P9 brand is known for its great standability, solid stress tolerance and exceptional yields.
