Soybean and corn farmer Allen Pfeiffer of Bonfield, Ill., received the first delivery of soybeans with the Roundup Ready 2 Yield trait at his Asgrow dealer, Heritage FS Inc., in Herscher, Ill.

Pfeiffer is transitioning to be the next generation to run the family farming operation, and looks forward to experiencing the next-generation of soybean technology.
