HY+Q Commends Its First Commercial Collaborator

It’s companies such as LG Seeds® putting real muscle behind the checkoff-funded High Yield PLUS Quality (HY+Q) initiative that helps maximize and maintain soybean value in livestock feed.

LG Seeds is the first seed company to collaborate with HY+Q to identify and promote soybean varieties that have the potential to produce high-value livestock feed and deliver a higher value to the marketplace. LG Seeds is committed to developing high quality, innovative products for their end user customers. Because of that, many soybean varieties from LG Seeds already meet HY+Q standards, with new varieties available for planting in 2020.

As an industry-leading seed company, LG Seeds wants its dealers and customers to understand the importance of livestock feed value, in addition to yield potential and other important agronomic factors, in the soybean varieties they plant. Working directly with the HY+Q program enables LG Seeds to share this critical information so U.S. farmers can make data-driven variety decisions.

Recent feed-value analysis by the HY+Q program shows that the following LG Seeds soybean varieties contain feed values sought by livestock farmers to provide high-quality nutrition to their herds and flocks. With the soybean industry’s first HY+Q variety list, it’s easier than ever to choose varieties that will help livestock customers meet their goals, while still providing the superior yield and agronomic traits that soybean farmers rely on.
