Seed company adds to corn product line
DuPont Pioneer, Des Moines, Iowa, is advancing 111 new Pioneer brand corn products, featuring 32 new genetic platforms, to better meet growers’ needs now and in the future.
The group of products includes 20 new Pioneer brand Optimum AQUAmax products, developed to yield in water-limited environments and now available in an expanded range of maturity zones. The Pioneer brand Optimum AcreMax Xtra and Optimum AcreMax XTreme products featuring proven and trusted above- and below-ground insect control traits will include 33 new products for growers to choose from in 2014.
In addition to the integrated refuge products available in the Optimum AcreMax product portfolio, Pioneer advanced three brown midrib (BMR) silage hybrids and a technology segment featuring a pyramid of insect protection traits called Optimum Leptra hybrids.
Through the silage genetics research program, three BMR silage hybrids are being introduced to growers with a maturity range from 102 to 111 CRM and are unlike any other BMR hybrids. The BMR gene contributes increased fiber digestibility, while the base genetics provide superior yield, starch and agronomics. Growers benefit from the Herculex XTRA insect protection for above- and below-ground corn rootworm protection on continuous corn acres used for silage production.
Pioneer is introducing four Optimum Leptra products for the 2014 planting season.
The products provide three traits to deliver multiple modes of action and superior protection from a broad spectrum of above-ground corn pests.
