Tyrone Forage Soybeans growing in Minnesota


Tyrone forage soybean brings out the potential in your dairy and cattle herd. The full season soybean has a “1-2 punch” of protein and biomass.

Tyrone is an indeterminate, maturity group 7 forage soybean that matures much later than conventional Ag soybeans. The indeterminate trait allows it to respond better to environmental conditions than determinate types and allows it grow longer into the season.

  • Tyrone’s are known for their bushy characteristics and height. They can reach heights up to 7 feet tall.
  • Potential to produce up to 9 tons of high protein forage per acre. Laboratory analysis has shown the Crude Protein (CP) to be 20% and greater.
  • Can be used for grazing, hay, or silage over a wide geographic area of the United States. Tyrone’s are superior in forage production compared to short, conventional grain-type soybean plants that are not well suited for high forage yields.
  • Its disease package makes it resistant to certain common soybean diseases such as Phytophthora.
  • Well suited for dairy and cattle forage where herbicide use is an utmost consideration. A great conventional forage soybean that will add dollars to your bottom line.Screen Shot 2014-02-01 at 3.34.28 PM

USDA Soybean breeder, Dr. Tom Devine,
developed the Tyrone forage soybean
variety. It was a culmination of 19 years of
work to develop the superior forage soybean.
