Optimize Your Yield

Rotate to an Alternative Crop

Rotate to Soybean or an Alternative Crop

If you have a field that has been in continuous corn production, and you are seeing increasing insect pressure, we recommend rotating to soybeans or other non-host crop.

Rotation

Plant Genuity® SmartStax® RIB Complete® corn blends

Plant Genuity® SmartStax® RIB Complete® corn blends

If you are seeing increased pressure in a field you intend to plant back to corn in 2014, we recommend planting Genuity® SmartStax® RIB Complete® corn blends that provide dual mode-of-action Bt traits and deliver excellent performance.

Plant Genuity® VT Triple PRO® with Soil Applied Insecticide

Plant either Genuity® VT Triple PRO® RIB Complete® corn blends or YieldGard VT Triple® products with soil applied insecticide.

If rotation or Genuity® SmartStax® RIB Complete™ corn is not an option for growers, using soil- or foliar-applied insecticides with Genuity® VT Triple PRO® and Genuity VT Triple PRO® RIB Complete™ to manage larvae and adults is a viable option.

Continue to Scout and Stay Ahead

Continue to Scout and Stay Ahead

We recommend continuing your integrated pest management program, including regular scouting, to better understand and manage your insect pressure.
