Hybrid Overview

KEY STRENGTHS

Rockstar “Western” bean! Fits SD, western IA, and NE and dominates with yield! BSR and SCN resistant with above average tolerance to high pH soils.

WEAKNESSES

Overall disease package is good, not great.

MANAGEMENT TIPS

Fit this soybean in Nebraska, South Dakota, and the western half of Iowa, and place it for high yield. Can be the first bean you plant as it has good emergence and early vigor. Use it in continuous soybeans or in rotation. Push the P and especially K fertility for best yields and stalk integrity.
