SHARE

Farmers that face high corn rootworm pressure will have an expanded choice of Genuity® SmartStax® RIB Complete™ blended corn products for the 2012 season. Farmers who planted Genuity SmartStax RIB Complete corn last year – according to Monsanto Corn Traits Marketing Manager Matt Kirkpatrick – were pleased with the effective rootworm control they experienced. In 2011 – he says corn products with the Genuity SmartStax technology achieved an average 3.8 bushel-per-acre yield advantage compared with competitive triple-stack products – and an average 8.5 bushel advantage in areas with heavy insect pressure.

Genuity SmartStax RIB Complete corn is offered this season in Monsanto’s national and regional seed brands – and by more than 100 independent seed companies. The products contain a blend of 95-percent B.t. corn and five-percent non-B.t. refuge seed – the lowest refuge in the Corn-Growing Area.
