ND Benson Soybean
The ND Benson soybean seed was released in 2017 thanks to funds made available by the North Dakota Soybean Council and the NDCISA has rights to the production and distribution of seed.
ND Benson has a high yield potential and was developed with the intention of replacing the Ashtabula soybean variety. A defining characteristic of this variety is its excellent soybean cyst nematode (SCN) resistance. It is not resistant to glyphosate but does have a tolerance to iron-deficiency chlorosis and is not prone to lodging. ND Benson has a relative maturity of 0.4, which is three days earlier than Sheyenne. The appearance of ND Benson includes a white flower, gray pubescence, tan pod color and a buff hila with dull seed coat luster.
To help ensure genetic purity, ND Benson is protected under Plant Variety Protection Title V and must be sold as a class of certified seed.
