Grain yield of Granger tested over 40 AYT

In addition to selecting for yield, the company's researchers also use AYT to select varieties possessing the key defensive traits demanded by growers.
The AYT process starts with Pioneer researchers mining and analyzing the company's germplasm database, including ancestral varieties that had been commercialized in the past, but are no longer on the market, to identify native genes associated with high yields.
The AYT system also improves our research timelines.
, advanced yield trial; G x E, genotype x environment interaction; R, repeatability.
In addition to defensive traits, Pioneer researchers used the AYT system to intensively mine the proprietary soybean germplasm base to select for enhanced and valuable agronomic traits, such as good emergence score.
Pioneer researchers are adopting the AYT system in all of the crops the company markets," Schafer concludes.
Y Series soybeans, and other products that are in the Pioneer pipeline that employ the AYT system, will certainly have an important role in accomplishing that goal.
