Healthy new oils continue to come gushing toward the farm gate. The latest is Plenish, the brand name for Pioneer Hi-Bred's new high-oleic soybean oil trait.
 
Pending regulatory approval, varieties will be available in a limited introduction for 2010 planting. Developed through the Pioneer exclusive Accelerated Yield Technology system and launched in the Y Series product line, these soybean varieties will include resistance to soybean cyst nematode, phytophthora and sudden death syndrome.
 
Plenish high-oleic soybean oil will provide the high stability and performance of partially hydrogenated oil without the trans fat and with lower saturated fats. There are also many bio-based industrial applications for high-oleic soy oil.
