Not every situation calls for a trait. Sometimes it makes sense to forgo a trait if heavy disease and insect pressure aren’t a concern. That’s why Stine’s corn and soybean breeding programs focus on developing high-yielding conventional genetics as the base of our products. With or without a trait, our corn and soybean lines are the newest, top-performing material out of our breeding programs.
“At Stine, we understand that each grower’s situation is unique, and they need products that best fit their operation,” says Myron Stine, company president. “That’s why our corn and soybeans start with a base of high-yielding germplasm. From there, we add the industry’s leading traits to give growers the protection they need for whatever Mother Nature throws their way.”
For 2024, we’re pleased to offer an expansive lineup of conventional and traited options.
Stine Corn Traits
Whether you’re looking for short corn or full-season genetics with the industry’s leading trait package, nobody is building better corn faster than Stine. Stine’s unique corn genetics combined with the most desirable trait packages in the market result in corn products that exhibit exceptional standability and superior performance.
Our 2024 corn lineup is the best we’ve ever offered. It features a mix of traited lines that excel in any field type and high-yielding conventional corn. We also have several short corn options for growers looking to take advantage of its benefits. Our 2024 seed corn traits include:
Stine GT™ — Stine GT corn combines our own unique genetics with built-in tolerance to glyphosate-based herbicides, providing growers the freedom to choose their preferred brand of glyphosate. This is a great option for refuge acres in a structured refuge operation.
Stine GT+ — Stine GT+ is derived from the same high-yielding genetics as Stine GT but with NK603 glyphosate resistance. Corn lines with the Stine GT trait are tolerant to glyphosate-based herbicides applied either alone or in combination with other herbicides.
Agrisure® traits — We’re pleased to offer several different Agrisure trait packages to ensure growers have options for season-long insect and weed protection. Our Agrisure-traited lineup has options featuring in-crop tolerance to both glyphosate- and glufosinate-based herbicides.
Stine conventional corn — Stine conventional corn consists of our top genetic material without the addition of traits.
Stine Soybean Traits
The Stine name is synonymous with soybeans. For nearly five decades, we’ve been developing the industry’s highest-yielding soybean germplasm, which is why the genetics developed by Stine’s breeding source are found on a majority of all US soybean acres. But today’s grower demands more. To ensure we can provide the best choices for every field, Stine has a full line of the industry’s most sought-after soybean traits, including:
Enlist E3®— Stine Enlist E3 soybeans offer advanced herbicide-tolerant technology with tolerance to 2,4-D choline, glyphosate and glufosinate in a three-gene stack. Our primary advantage? We have the industry’s broadest lineup of Enlist E3 soybeans. Other soybean breeders have made far fewer Enlist E3 crosses and observed far fewer generations of material, which means we have the best and the most robust offering of Enlist E3 soybean seed in the industry.
LibertyLink® GT27®— These high-yielding soybeans help tackle tough weeds through three unique sites of action — glyphosate, Liberty® and HPPD/Group 27 herbicides (Alite™ 27 and Motif™). Stine LibertyLink GT27 soybeans continuously perform equal to or higher than many current brands in our Elite Yield Trials.
XtendFlex®— Stine XtendFlex soybeans are built upon the proven performance of Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® technology but with added tolerance to glufosinate. Growers can use dicamba, glyphosate and glufosinate with XtendFlex soybeans, giving them another option in their toolbox to manage tough weeds.
Elite conventional — Our conventional lines feature the high-yielding genetics that have made us an industry leader in soybean production. Stine Elite conventional soybeans are a great option for growers who are looking to save on costs and are not anticipating heavy insect or weed pressure next growing season. These lines are made from our newest germplasm, so you know you’re getting the latest and greatest conventional material.
