Integra® focuses on the unique challenges faced in each local region to provide optimum yield. In the eastern cornbelt, where Phytophthora Root Rot is
a major concern, Integra selects soybean varieties with gene-specific resistance as well as excellent field tolerance. Varieties with exceptional white
mold tolerance are chosen for the upper Midwest as well as Iron Chlorosis tolerance for Iowa, Minnesota and the Dakotas. Particular care is placed on
stress tolerance for western regions. All of Integra Soybean varieties are selected through vigorous research from thousands of options from many genetic
suppliers for strong disease resistance and excellent standability overall.
Growers Do Their Part
Growers who choose to use seed with a Monsanto® biotech trait or a Syngenta® biotech trait or any other information required by any applicable license
for Agrisure products must:
- Sign a Monsanto Technology Stewardship Agreement or a Syngenta Stewardship Agreement.
- Comply with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations by following Insect Resistance Management (IRM) practices for specific biotech traits.
- Plant patented seed only to produce a single commercial crop, without saving progeny seed for planting a subsequent crop.
- Sell harvested corn with biotech traits not yet approved by the European Union to grain handlers that confirm their acceptance or use the corn on-farm.
Failure to follow IRM guidelines and properly plant a refuge may result in the revocation of the grower’s Monsanto Technology Stewardship Agreement or
Syngenta Stewardship Agreement and loss of access to insect-protected technologies.
Do your part to ensure these technologies are preserved by following the IRM Stewardship guidelines.
Benefits of New Seed
Reap the Benefits of Planting New Soybean Seed

Seed Piracy Statement
- Highest quality and highest yielding product vs. bin-run
- Access to the most elite germplasm
- Average loss of 10 to 15 percent at harvest for bin-run seed
- Bin-run planting rates are generally 15 percent higher than new certified seed
- Dealer agronomic support before and after the sale
