First-ever Varieties Available This Season Combine Elite Pioneer Genetics and Advanced Weed Control

Pioneer today announced the availability of the first-ever varieties of Pioneer® brand A-Series Enlist E3® soybeans. These varieties, exclusive to Pioneer, combine the world-class genetics of Pioneer® brand A-Series soybeans, the company’s highest-yielding varieties ever, with Enlist® technology, the most advanced trait technology in soybeans.

“A-Series Enlist E3 soybeans are expected to bring a welcome and significant boost to the yield performance potential of soybeans with the Enlist E3 trait thanks in large part to their superior genetic package,” said Don Gehrls, Pioneer Soybeans Marketing Lead. “We then protect that genetic potential with exceptional agronomic characteristics and defensive traits to fight disease and other harmful field conditions.”

In extensive testing and trials across geographies in 2021, A-Series Enlist E3 soybeans delivered a bushels-per-acre advantage that equates to $32.00/A in potential additional farm income against all competitors.1 Gehrls anticipates that advantage will only continue to increase. 

“As Pioneer breeders leverage our extensive localized breeding and testing program, the result will be even more exclusive products that are both customized to farmers’ acres and packed with even more yield potential,” Gehrls said. “As excited as we are to deliver these new varieties now, this is just the beginning.”

In all, 28 varieties, across a range of maturities, will be available in limited quantities this season with wider availability expected in 2023.

Supercharging the Enlist® Weed Control System

Farmers are already familiar with the advantages of the Enlist® weed control system. With an adoption rate on U.S. soybean acres of approximately 35% in 2021, the Enlist weed control system is the industry’s fastest-growing soybean herbicide system, a trend Pioneer expects to continue with the introduction of high-performing A-series Enlist E3 soybeans.

The Enlist weed control system provides a new standard for weed control that delivers on-target applications with enhanced flexibility. Enlist® herbicides feature near-zero volatility and reduced potential for physical drift, when applied according to label instructions, as well as a wide application window, no calendar cut-off dates or time-of-day restrictions.

"With superior yield performance potential and the clear benefits of the Enlist weed control system, farmers planting A-Series Enlist E3 soybeans are getting an exceptionally high-performing soybean seed package," Gehrls said. “Based on the early response and demand we’ve seen from farmers, it’s clear they’ve been eagerly waiting for these new varieties to come to market.”

Don Gehrls, Pioneer Soybeans Marketing Lead, will be available for interviews at Commodity Classic, March 10-12 in New Orleans as well as the week of March 14 for media not in attendance.

1 Income/A advantage is calculated with the price of soybeans at $16.00 per bushel as of Feb. 22, 2022.
