This is a breakthrough for farmers in the South. Farmers needed a good, high-yielding variety with multi-race SCN resistance.

We knew what they were going to do to try to break the press. We just had to adjust to it. We got active. We're focused in on Saturday.
In addition to multi-race SCN resistance, 95M60 has a couple of other traits that are beneficial and unique. It has good root-knot nematode resistance and very strong soybean aphid antibiosis.
Obviously we wanted to be the best team in the state by winning the Federation. We'd never be happy with a loss, but we know the big picture, and we're still state champions. We're so proud of the kids and that's what we'll focus on.
Resistance to SCN races 1, 2, 3, 5 and 14 has been confirmed with 95M60. A change in the nematode spectrum in Southern fields created a need for this type of multi-race resistance.
One can be so focused on biotechnology, which is certainly important ... and lose sight of all the other career opportunities ... It's really going to be a mini city within a city.
It's nice that people regard us that highly. I don't think people thought we were going to be as good as we are with (Ray) Blackburn gone. It's still the middle of January. Now if we're No. 1 come March 17 (end of the state playoffs), then I'll really be happy.
