DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., USA, Feb. 21, 2023 — Today, NK Seeds revealed their soybean lineup for the 2023 growing season, offering a diverse soybean class with the trait choices farmers want and need, including Enlist E3® and XtendFlex® soybean technologies. Few aspects of farming are static — but while seasons change, technologies evolve, and regulations adjust, NK Seeds remains steadfast in its commitment to helping farmers make the most of every acre in the face of continuously changing field conditions.

“Now more than ever, farmers are looking for choices, along with trait flexibility and, subsequently, strong defensive agronomic traits,” says Jared Benson, Soybean Product Manager at NK Seeds. “With the recent label changes for over-the-top dicamba application in several key U.S. soybean states, farmers seek soybean products that they can be confident will give them a strong, fast start this spring. The proprietary genetics and proven performance that NK Seeds offers in both traits will help them do just that.”

The NK soybean portfolio provides multiple top-performing products in each maturity group and geography, including:

  • Enlist E3 soybeans, which provide tolerance to glyphosate, glufosinate and 2,4-D choline — three distinct modes of action that help farmers and applicators manage tough-to-control weeds. This complete, easy-to-use system offers farmers greater yield potential along with responsible, effective and flexible weed control.
  • XtendFlex soybeans, which deliver tolerance to dicamba, glyphosate and glufosinate herbicides. Stacked on strong yield potential and agronomics, this high-yielding trait technology provides farmers with greater flexibility.
Both products are viable for farmers who are wanting options for the 2023 growing season. “We’re the only seed provider to offer the most sought-after herbicide traits stacked on our own proprietary germplasm, and it’s a powerful combination,” says Benson. “Taking a farmer-first approach to all that we do, we understand the importance of providing farmers with top-performing genetics and a range of trait options for high yield potential and strong performance. Because the leading herbicide trait choices don’t matter if the varieties don’t yield.”
