A hard day’s work. A hundred percent. A lot of late nights. And a load of trust.

When you count on DEKALB® Disease Shield™ technology, we can deliver with an unmatched level of defense against the five most yield-robbing diseases. Because when it comes to your crop and your livelihood, your family and their future, you have to protect what’s yours.

In 2016 and 2017, DEKALB® Disease Shield™ products with both VT Double PRO® and SmartStax® Technology demonstrated very effective disease protection and achieved an average yield advantage of 9.2 bushel/acre in more than 12,000 trial plot comparisons with competitor corn products across the U.S.

Estimated macroeconomic impact and risk of yield loss from corn diseases: summarized across commercial products with a 6 rating (1 best-9 worst) in corn growing in regions of the U.S. known for presence of each disease. Impact in individual fields and on products with rating above or below 6 will vary. SOURCES:

  • Does not account for yearly variation (e.g. FCR-2014, AER-2012, DER-2009)
  • Does not account for potentially susceptible germplasm (e.g. Physoderma-Iowa)
  • Does not consider lack of in-season control (e.g. CLN)
  • Based on estimated impact on yield — does not account for other factors (lodging, etc.)

Shield Your Yield

Performance may vary, and performance my vary from location to location and from year to year. This result may not be an indicator of results you may obtain as local growing, soil and weather conditions may vary. Growers should evaluate data from multiple locations and years whenever possible.
