I asked Darcy Pawlik, a product marketing lead for Syngenta cereals about AgriPro for the Northwest. "We've had the benefit of being out in the Pacific Northwest for about 30 years. It is taken us a little bit to grow our roots deep enough to call ourselves long stay players in the Pacific Northwest but certainly over the last couple of years we have had some tremendous releases on the back of John Moffatt. Most notably, this year. We are very proud of the fact that his variety SY Ovation hit number one for planted acres through Washington, been number one in Idaho as well. We are obviously very proud of the history there both with winter wheat and spring wheat and we've had more releases over the last two years than we've ever had before. They are very competitive from a yield standpoint, pathology package, good quality and then we look into the future from AgriPro perspective than we have SY Assure that will be on more acres this year following Ovation. Have quite a bit in the kitty as well. The pipeline is looking good. We have more diversity of germ plasm that we are bringing to the forefront and we have a lot of things with that complement what is already going on.
