Small quantities will be available this year to researchers and key farm cooperators with a full commercial launch scheduled for 2021. Nearly all of the current SCN resistant varieties are derived from the PI 88788 and Peking breeding lines, but the new Syngenta variety is from the PI 8972 breeding line.
