Planting Genuity Corn Traits Made Easier
By: Kevin Carlson, Certified Professional Agronomist, Federated Coops, Inc.
Planting Genuity VT Double Pro (GENVT2P) corn just got easier! Monsanto was recently approved for refuge in a bag (RIB) for their GENVT2P event by the EPA for the 2012 season. This event offers two above ground proteins for protection against European corn borer, corn earworm, and fall armyworm with only a 5 % refuge requirement which is blended in the bag and ready to plant. No need to plant a separate refuge! For our customers who do not need rootworm protection, GENVT2P with RIB will make planting more convenient and faster than ever, just dump in the planter and go to the field saving you precious time.
For the 2012 planting season, not all GENVT2P hybrids will be RIB. Please see your local Federated Agronomy Sales Specialist near you for more information on hybrids and availability for 2012 planting.
