HYBRID SEED CORN
Each sales season Doebler’s brings to its growers a new lineup of seed corn products based on potential for outstanding performance on farms here in the East. We typically introduce between fifteen and twenty new hybrids each season. Due to recent market demands, the 2013 Sales Season list of new products will reach forty
with six conventional or non-trait seed corns, along with two certified organic products.
New seed corn products also include a significant number with technologies and traits:
Agrisure Viptera® 3110 trait stack which provides breakthrough control of corn borer and the insects of the multi-pest complex for growers who do not need corn rootworm control. It also offers the same herbicide flexibility as the Agrisure® 3000GT triple stack, with the choice of either glyphosate or glufosinate tolerance.^
Optimum® IntrasectTM Insect Protection which delivers the lowest refuge level available: 20% in EPA-designated cotton counties and 5% in the Northeast. By combining the highly effective Herculex® I and YieldGard® Corn Borer traits, Optimum Intrasect insect protection allows growers to reduce the amount of above-ground refuge and plant more insect protection on more acres.
Optimum® AcreMax® Insect Protection with its single-bag integrated refuge solution for above-ground insects; and Optimum® AcreMax® Xtra Insect Protection with its single-bag integrated refuge solution for above- and below-ground insects.
Optimum® AQUAmax™ products deliver multiple modes of action through a suite of native traits. Drought tolerance is controlled by a large number of genes and heavily influenced by environmental factors (for example, heat, water stress, soil types). Optimum AQUAmax hybrids include key native traits that improve mechanisms associated with better performance in water limited environments.
As with all Doebler’s and RPM brand seed products, genetics is first and foremost in their selection.
^ EXPORT APPROVAL NOTICE: This product is fully approved in the United States. All traits included in these hybrids are approved in key global markets. The combination of these traits and the grain and certain by-products from these hybrids may not be approved for all markets. For questions about specific countries please contact your sales professional. Doebler’s customers are advised to discuss trait acceptance policies with their local grain handler prior to delivering grain containing biotech traits. In EPA designated cotton areas, a 20% refuge is required.
