Higher-yield soybeans available
Ohlde Seed Farms, Palmer, Kan., has seven new soybean varieties listed in its latest product catalog. Ohlde offers the capability to access top performing genetics and traits and incorporate them into soil-specific seed varieties.
The 0 394 variety is an option for irrigation and high-yield environments, according to Shane Ohlde, president of Ohlde Seed Farms. The 0 404 is a new medium height plant. While 0 394 is best suited for high-yield environments, 0 404 has great stress tolerance, including for heat stress. It was the No. 3 performer in a Farmer’s Independent Research of Seed Technology (FIRST) trial near Beatrice, Neb., this past October with a yield of 64.8 bushels per acre. 0 424 is another variety with yield potential.
Like 0 404, it provides Roundup Ready 2 and STS stacked traits and excellent emergence. A new 0 474 is another tough stress bean and performs across all yield environments. Ohlde Seed Farms continues to sell 0 453, a favorite in much of central Kansas.
