Glyphosate Tolerant Soybean January 11, 2018

Glyphosate Tolerant Soybean

In 2017 North Dakota Crop Improvement distributed the ND17009GT Soybean to counties around the state. Williams County received 30 bushels of foundation seed that was given to a farmer west of Williston with irrigation. We are now able to sell 800 units of ND17009GT, Glyphosate Tolerant Soybean, throughout Williams County. This soybean has an early maturity, 00.9 maturity, which makes it a good fit for the northern areas. This soybean has performed well in North Dakota State University trials and on the operation where it was grown in 2017. In the 2015-2016 year, it produced 62.3 bushels/acre. Under the irrigation in 2017, the yield was roughly 80 bushel/acre.

This variety is resistant to race 4 phytophthora root rot and has moderate tolerance to iron-deficiency chlorosis. It does exhibit sensitivity to metribuzin herbicide, but injury has not been observed when using the recommended application rate of metribuzin (which is always recommended to use the rates listed on the label of pesticides). ND17009GT has a white flower, tawny pubescence, brown pods, shiny seed coat luster and black hila. Williams County Agriculture Improvement Association has decided to allow those buying the seed in 2018 to receive 200 units per operation. A unit is 140,000 seeds, and the cost of this seed is $31.50 a unit. With limited quantities it is first come first serve, once the 800 units have been spoken for, a list will be kept until payment has been received. If you are interested in this seed, please call the NDSU Extension Office at 701-577-4595.
