Pioneer made a bold move Dec. 13. The company announced a new generation of soybean seeds a year ahead of schedule. Pioneer introduced 54 new A-series varieties in 2017. 

Drew Porter, Dupont Pioneer Director for U.S. and Canada product marketing, says they are the highest yielding products ever introduced by the company. 

In addition, the company also introduced the 2017 corn product line-up. Dupont-Pioneer introduced 29 new genetic platforms and 53 new corn products which will cover a variety of maturities with some designed for drought tolerance and yield stability.
