DuPont Congratulates Growers Planting Pioneer(R) Brand Sorghum Hybrids in Winning Majority of National Categories in Yield Contest
Date:12/18/2007

DES MOINES, Iowa, Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ --- DuPont today congratulated growers planting Pioneer(R) brand sorghum hybrids who recently won 12 of the 15 national categories in the 2007 National Sorghum Producers' (NSP) Yield and Management contest. Ten of these growers won with Pioneer sorghum hybrid 84G62.

Farmers growing Pioneer sorghum hybrids finished first place in all five national contest segments. First-, second- and third-place national honors were awarded in each segment.

In addition, growers winning both "bin-buster" 2007 championships also planted Pioneer sorghum hybrids. They were Ki Gamble, Kiowa County, Kan., with 202.96 bushels per acre in the irrigated class and Jon Robinson from Union County, Ken., with 177.31 bushels per acre in the non-irrigated class. NSP contest winners are awarded based on their ability to exceed established USDA yield average for the county where the contest field is grown; the "bin-buster" awards are given to the actual highest yield gained in irrigated and non-irrigated categories.

The NSP Yield and Management contest is an annual competition among sorghum producers with the goal of producing the highest yields. Growers compete within a broad range of sorghum production classes, including conventional-till irrigated, conventional-till non-irrigated, mulch-till non-irrigated, no-till non-irrigated and reduced-till irrigated.

In addition to national placings, growers planting Pioneer sorghum hybrids also captured a majority of the state awards. Among state winners, growers planting Pioneer sorghum hybrids won 77 percent of all category placements.

"We're pleased to see the outstanding results growers achieved in the NSP contest this year," said Paul Schickler, DuPont vice president and general manager and Pioneer president. "The attentive management practices of these growers, along with strong performing products, led to their success. Having the majority of the top-yielding hybrids in
