Peterson Farms Seed soybean breeder Dennis Schultze has been in the business for 25 years, a time of big changes. CRISPR gene editing technology and marker assisted breeding are now used. “Breeders are basically front-loading all of this neat stuff into new varieties before they even start yield testing.” It still takes time to develop new varieties, but the industry is more efficient. Schultze is most excited about the new Enlist soybean varieties this year, but they are moving quickly. Hear more about available varieties.
