255R2

255R2 is truly a yield leader in the mid Group II maturity.  It has all the makings of a big acre soybean.  From the start, this variety will impress with great emergence and early growth.  255R2 has excellent tolerance to Brown Stem Rot and Phytophthora and is good at handling pressure from Sudden Death Syndrome and White Mold.  This variety is at home both under tougher yield conditions and top end yield environments including an irrigated acre.
