Dear Friends, What a time for agriculture. With a two-year supply of commodities most widely grown, prices are not rebounding much, although a weather scare (fact) will make a difference. If you could get seed in the ground. Then there are the trade wars. While more-than-likely necessary in the long term due primarily to intellectual property issues, the pain is narrowly focus on our growers and customers. Excitement for the upcoming harvest is at an all-time low, with hopes of recovering from late plantings this spring. What can or should your seed company do with all of this. While some of the programs and activities of the past few seasons have great value, we can’t wait for fruition. Like all of you, we’ve tightened our belt and are focusing on how best to bring the value you deserve. We are examining all of our operating expenses and pricing to you as aggressively as we can. We are narrowing our testing programs, bringing

them closer to you to get even better, more localized data to offer you the best chance of success. With all of this happening, 2019 turned out to be a pretty good year for NorthStar Genetics. Our sales, as of this writing, are above a year ago. Both soybeans and corn sales are ahead of pace, and we’re excited about that. “New genetics, locally grown, sold and conditioned by someone you trust” is a phrase we have used in the past. It resonated then, and does now as well. It’s why we are still here after 24 years. And we’ll be here as long as we can bring you value. Thank you for your loyalty.

Sincerely, Your NorthStar Genetics Team

Think Before You Bin-Run Verification Required The last patent on the original Roundup Ready® soybean trait expired a few

years ago and U.S. farmers may legally plant saved seed from some varieties of soybean containing the Roundup Ready® soybean trait. However, it is important that you check with your seed supplier to determine if a specific Roundup Ready® soybean variety is covered by other intellectual property rights, and if so, the policy for saving seed of that variety.

Higher Seeding Rate A higher seeding rate

Seed Treatment Costs Treating your seed will add costs—both the cost of the treatment and the application of that treatment.

Yield Loss Genuity® Roundup Ready 2

Lost Income Every bushel of saved seed you plant is a bushel you’re not selling as commodity grain.

may be required for bin-run Roundup Ready® soybeans compared to new branded seed.

Yield® soybean varieties and Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybean varieties typically have a higher yield opportunity than Roundup Ready® soybean varieties*.

Cleanout Loss Loss of seed and/or shrink

occurs during the seed cleaning and handling processes for bin-run seed.

Increased Seed Management If you plan to save and bin-run Roundup Ready® soybeans for planting, you will have to manage your harvest operations and grain storage so that the seed isn’t co-mingled with other seed that’s covered by intellectual property rights.
