Central MN Yields from Your Fields - Nov13

  1. 1. WALKING YOUR FIELDS ® November 2013 - Issue 6 www.pioneer.com 2013 Harvest Results Are Coming In This final issue for 2013 contains key yield comparison summaries to help you select products for 2014. Keep in mind this is only a small set of a much larger data set. Continue to select hybrids and varieties based on long term trends and on performance at multiple locations. For more detailed yield comparisons, along with individual plots from your area, visit www.pioneer.com/yield. Contact your local Pioneer sales professional for more local information and to help you place the right product on your acres. We value your business. Please be safe this busy harvest season. 2013 Growing Season In Perspective 1. Weather was the big topic that impacted all of us again this past season. Most of Minnesota struggled to get corn planted before May 20. Prevented planted acres hit SE MN especially hard. 2. Heat stress during the pollination period and ear filling period stressed many hybrids. Products that have early silk dates along with good heat stress showed advantages this fall. For example: Pioneer® P9526AMX™ brand corn, P9834AMX™, P9917AMX™, P0193AM™, P0297AMX™, P0533AMX™. 3. Late Summer drought is becoming the norm as it affected a large portion of the upper Midwest again in 2013. This period of drought and heat stress was both beneficial in that it pushed later planted crops to maturity, yet took the top-end off what could have been a remarkable corn and bean crop. 4. Stalk integrity was challenged in some hybrids by nutrient deficiencies and late season moisture stress. 5. Beautiful stretches of weather in August and September allowed crops to catch up in development. 6. Later frost dates allowed later planted corn to reach maturity, lose kernel moisture and improve test weight. Data is from Minnesota Ag Statistics showing precipitation departure from normal. Many areas prior to October 14 were severely deficient for the growing season. Recent rainfall has been a nuisance for field work, yet it is still very welcome for recharging subsoil reserves. Programs & Cutoff Dates Pioneer Yield Website The best prices of the season are soon coming to an end in this first pay period. Contact your local Pioneer sales professional for details and more local yield information. There are many good reasons to consider planting more Pioneer® brand products on your farms in 2014, such as: Local yield performance information is just a click away! Access local and regional yield data at your convenience on the Pioneer.com website. It’s easy – just go to: http:// www.pioneer.com/yield. There are many innovative features available on the performance website:        Competitive pricing and early orders get the best supply and kernel size offerings now.

No username or password is required to access the website on Pioneer.com.  A large interactive Google map overlays individual plot data on a map for quicker access to all the plots in a radius around a given zip code. You can widen your search out to 100 mile radius of any given zip code.  Filters are available to narrow the list of plots displayed by product.  Product Summaries will become available as we get more yield data entered into the system. This gives you a bigger picture of product performance across the area. Visit this website often to stay up to date on Pioneer® brand corn and soybean variety performance. 
  2. 2. The results are coming in this fall with several of our new Pioneer ® brand corn hybrids performing at a high level. The following tables give an overview of the main 2013 Pioneer corn hybrids and soybean varieties that are being sold in Central and Southern Minnesota. With soybean harvest wrapping up, we have a lot of yield data available from multiple locations. Our new Pioneer brand T-Series soybeans continue to show their yield advantages. Growers across Minnesota plant more of their soybean acres to Pioneer than any other soybean brand. 2012-2013 Pioneer® brand Soybean Variety** Yields vs. Competitive Varieties Southern Minnesota & Northern Iowa Variety/Brand** Comparison Brand Number of Comparisons Pioneer Yield Advantage Pioneer Yield Percent Wins Pioneer AGI Adv. $ 92Y22 Asgrow AG1931 22 0.7 50% $10 92Y22 Channel 2000R2 15 0.6 60% $7 92Y22 Stine 22RC62 8 -0.3 38% ($4) 92Y22 Asgrow AG2330 5 5.0 80% $65 P22T69R Asgrow AG2031 43 0.6 58% $8 P22T69R Asgrow AG2232 6 0.3 67% $5 P22T69R Asgrow AG2433 11 -0.6 55% ($7) 92Y30 Channel 2000R2 8 2.9 50% $38 P24T19R Asgrow AG2232 5 -0.7 40% ($9) P25T51R Asgrow AG2433 8 3.9 88% $51 2014 Elite Pioneer® brand Corn Hybrids* for Central and Southern Minnesota Hybrid/Brand* Tech.
