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. Asgrow, Monsanto's national soybean seed brand, is one of the first seed companies to market the new higher-yielding soybean technology.

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.

"It's exciting to be keeping up with technology and improving my farm," he said. "Talking to my local seed dealer and hearing about the plot data helped me make my decision to try Asgrow Roundup Ready 2 Yield. The whole idea is to help our bottom line." The brand's consistency and seed quality were also factors in his seed purchase decision.

"As the seed brand that delivers innovation to the farm, Asgrow is proud to be leading the way in the introduction of this important new technology," said Asgrow Marketing Lead Jeff Wheeler. "The combination of Roundup Ready 2 Yield's step-change in yield potential and the consistent, high performance of Asgrow's exclusive genetics is a winning combination in the field."
