Indiana Farmer Finds 5-Bean Pod

 

Ben Thompson of Seymour, Indiana found this 5-bean pod this season in his field of Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybeans.  Farmers who plant this second-generation soybean technology from Monsanto have reported seeing more 3, 4 and even 5-bean pods, which results in higher yield potential compared to original Roundup Ready® soybeans.  Thompson planted the technology in the Stewart™ Seeds brand.
