STRIKE is the latest innovation to enhance Pioneer's Research Programme. STRIKE stands for Seed Technology Research in Key Environments. This programme is an advanced method for evaluating hybrids in research plots.
STRIKE trials are planted in a range of environments with different soil types and disease pressures.
As the name implies, these trials involve a number of Seed Technology Research methods, benefiting from intensive management, close observation and evaluation throughout the growing season by a specialist STRIKE team.
STRIKE takes the number of on-farm trials and the amount of data to a whole new level and allows Pioneer to test many more of our hybrids to identify top candidates for commercialization. We're trying to find products that perform consistently.
The end goal is to best position specific Pioneer hybrids to growers' individual needs and growing conditions.
