AGP Announces Vistive® Contracts for 2011
Ag Processing Inc. (AGP) has announced it will partner with soybean growers who are interested in producing Vistive® soybeans and delivering them to one of four participating AGP processing facilities.
AGP plans to process Vistive beans at plant locations in Eagle Grove, Iowa; Manning, Iowa; Sergeant Bluff, Iowa; and Hastings, Neb. Growers can earn a premium of between 50 and 60 cents a bushel, depending on the delivery option they choose.
Growers interested in Vistive contracts should consider these Latham® soybean brands with the Vistive trait:
- L2735R2V – This 2.7 soybean contains the Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® technology with the Vistive low-linolenic trait. It’s a fairy tall, tough line that performs well in lighter soils but also responds to higher fertility situations. Its defensive package includes the C-gene for Phytophthora, good tolerance to Iron Chlorosis and very good tolerance to Sudden Death Syndrome.
- L3153R2V – This is a second generation Roundup Ready 2 & soybean line that combines that new high-yielding technology with the Vistive trait for low-linolenic oil production. It carries the Rps1-c gene for Phytophthora and has very good tolerance to Iron Chlorosis. Its excellent stress tolerance makes it ideally suited for tougher soils.
