“This year we have seen very little pollination problems compared to our competitors who are having big troubles. Grain fill and stands look nice. On a year like this, you can see clear differences in the pollination, grain fill and of course the yield,65533;? Hassan said.
Many of Hassan’s customers in Kansas participated in the Ground BreakersSM trials where they were able to test the new Genuity® DroughtGard™ Hybrids on their own farms. In addition to utilizing the drought tolerant trait, Hassan said tillage practices and planting time is critical.
“They [Ground Breakers trials] have been a tremendous value to both our customers and ourselves. We have pretty positive feedback from our farmer customers as they go look at those trials. We have had an opportunity to look at those several times during the season and we look forward to the yields,65533;? Hassan said.
Pending certain international regulatory approvals, DEKALB products containing the drought-tolerant biotech trait will be available for purchase in 2013. For more information on DroughtGard Hybrids, please refer to the video below.
The Genuity® DroughtGard™ Hybrids trait has been deregulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Import approvals in key corn export markets with functioning regulatory systems are in progress. For 2013, DroughtGard™ Hybrids will be commercially available in the western great plains area to growers who have signed and agree to follow the Genuity DroughtGard Hybrids Stewardship Agreement. It is a violation of national and international law to move material containing biotech traits across boundaries into nations where import is not permitted.13;10;13;10; ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW PESTICIDE LABEL DIRECTIONS.
