#IGROWSOYBEANS What are growers saying about NorthStar Genetics’ products and services? “The first thing that comes to mind when I think about NorthStar Genetics is they definitely know beans! That’s it, plain and simple.” “NorthStar Genetics products are a good fit for my farm because they have a product for every acre, whether it’s Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® or LibertyLink®, or the defensive traits like cyst or phytophthora, NorthStar has the product to put in that place.” “I value the knowledge that my rep has about the products that NorthStar Genetics sells, and being able to put the right product in the right place.” Matt Buttke – Fingal, ND

At NorthStar Genetics, we know beans. www.northstargenetics.com

To our dealers, Thank you for your business.

research and development to find the best varieties and hybrids that suit your area.

It just doesn't slow down, does it? Thanks to instant electronics, too much media too fast, and (I'm guilty of this one) the ability to be tied to our phones 24/7, the pace in all that we do is accelerated. Our industry is no different. The mergermania continues to churn, taking 18 to 36 months to accomplish, making customers and employees nervous how best to go about accessing the best genetics and traits for your farm. What does NorthStar Genetics think and do with all this?

We are expanding our sales force and having our sales team increase their engagement and support of dealers to help them bring the right product mix to producers. We are working more on farm with producers to understand their needs, but also to run more accessable demo trials for producers to see our products for themselves. And we are working with Climate Corporation to help producers learn and profit from the data that they generate in their operations.

Dan Hogstad, CEO, NorthStar Genetics

Never before has agriculture been so exciting. We remind ourselves that our dealer relationships are more vital than ever. Continuing to provide you and your customers the best genetics and traits we can, ALONG with the professional relationships you've come to expect, cannot be just business as usual. We need to keep adding to our strengths in order to service the best dealer force on the ground.

Again, I want to thank you for your business. NorthStar Genetics continues to grow and expand, adding sales and administrative staff. As you do in your business, we do in ours: get better at all we do. Thank you again,

How? We are becoming more engaged with breeders,

#IGROWSOYBEANS What are growers saying about NorthStar Genetics’ products and services? “Standability is very important. We had a year where we had hail – the beans stayed short, the pods were all the way from the ground up. We still had a 20+ bushel yield that year with a very extensive yield impact. Some had up to 100 pods a plant – mostly singles because of the hail, but it was still an amazing year.” “When I think of NorthStar Genetics, I think of soybean yields that stack up.” Kevin Lindeman – Brownton, MN

Locally developed hybrids. World-renowned trait stacks.

GTA

The Agrisure Artesian® GTA trait stack brings together the elite class of high-performing Artesian™ hybrids, which convert water to grain more effectively than other hybrids, with the Agrisure® GT trait—resulting in season-long water optimization, plus excellent tolerance to in-crop applications of glyphosate-based herbicides.

The Agrisure® traits portfolio offers a range of technologies that help you manage production challenges and protect the genetic yield potential of your hybrids. From best-in-class insect control to water optimization, we can help you find the right combination to get the most from your fields.

3122

The Agrisure® 3122 E-Z Refuge® trait stack offers the convenience of an integrated refuge featuring two modes of action against corn borer and corn rootworm, as well as control of ear-feeding corn insects. Agrisure 3122 E-Z Refuge is a good addition to a multi-year corn rootworm management plan.

3220A

The Agrisure Viptera® 3220A E-Z Refuge® trait stack combines the benefits of a hybrid that maximizes yield when it rains and increases yield when it doesn’t. It provides integrated refuge and dual modes of action against above-ground corn insects, including corn borer, to reduce mold and mycotoxin contamination by limiting insect feeding damage and to protect the quality of grain. It is ideal for areas where rootworm management is not a key focus.

Individual results may vary. Important: RIB Complete® are blended seed corn products that require the planting of a structured refuge in the Cotton-Growing Area. Always read and follow IRM, grain marketing and all other stewardship practices and pesticide label directions.
