About ND Benson
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.
