Deltapine Varieties Fit in All Geographies

Dave Rhylander, Deltapine marketing lead for Monsanto, says the company is seeing another stellar year in terms of performance and popularity of its extensive seed portfolio.

DP 0912 B2RF was third in national market share (7.04%), but had nearly one-quarter of the market in the Mid-South.

“DP 0912 B2RF continues to be a top performer in the north Delta region,” Rhylander says. “It is a very good variety that has been proven to perform in hot, dry conditions, or with adequate rainfall or irrigation. We’re also hearing some good yield reports on DP 1034 B2RF, which farmers have been planting for two years now.”

In the Southeast, Rhylander says despite the tough start due to hot and dry conditions, “we’re hearing some excellent yields from DP 1050 B2RF and DP 1048 B2RF. Some of the farmers who planted DP 0912 late, I think are going to be very pleased with the results.”

Two products that launched in the Class of 11 – DP 1133 B2RF and DP 1137 B2RF – also performed very well.

“In the southern part of the Delta – south Arkansas, Louisiana – we’ve seen some good yields from DP 1133,” Rhylander continues. “The DP 1137 was more of a product for northern Alabama and the Carolinas and the farmers we’ve talked to are very pleased with how it came out of the ground, and how it grew. It takes management, but it turned out about like it did for the farmers who grew is last year in the NPE (New Product Evaluator) trials.”

Despite the historic drought in Texas, Rhylander says some growers were surprised with the performance of DP 1032 B2RF and DP 1032 B2RF. “We all know about the struggles this year, and they grew in some tough conditions,” he says. “Another product we’ve heard some very positive comments about from down in the Coastal Bend is DP 0935 B2RF.”

One of the first questions seed company representatives are being asked about this year is the seed supply and seed quality situation for 2012.

“They ask in particular about what’s happening in Texas,” he says. “Fortunately we stayed on top of the weather patterns in Texas and were able to move much of our seed production from Texas to Arizona. So we’ll have plenty of the varieties farmers want for the Texas geographies. And we still have some seed production in the Mississippi Delta. We feel pretty good right now about our seed supply.”
