Marketing Expansion of Low Linolenic Soybeans

Pioneer selling seed to additional states.

Pioneer Hi-Bred has made a deal with Perdue AgriBusiness out of Maryland to sell low linolenic soybeans for the upcoming growing season to farmers in Maryland, southern Pennsylvania, and Delaware.

The soybeans, which have been sold for the last three years by Pioneer, have an oil acid profile of less than 3% which gives it a longer shelf life and eliminates trans fats because partial hydrogenation isn't required.

Farmers who grow the soybeans will receive a 60-cent premium from Perdue. Perdue Vice President John Ade says the company is excited about bringing low linolenic soybeans to farmers along the East Coast as well as food companies who want lower trans fats.
