Trait Talk

To help preserve the benefits of the YieldGard® and Genuity® family of corn technologies, an Insect Resistance Management (IRM) plan must be a part of every farmer’s production strategy.

IRM plans are required for all farmers who intend to plant any B.t. technologies.
Genuity® SmartStax® RIB Complete® and Genuity® VT Double PRO® RIB Complete® contain a blend of 95% traited corn seed and 5% refuge (non B.t.) corn seed. Genuity® VT Triple PRO® RIB Complete® contains a blend of 90% traited corn seed and 10% refuge (non B.t.) corn seed.
Farmers who plant Genuity® RIB Complete® products will no longer need to plant a separate, structured refuge for insect pests on those given fields.
