DuPont gets two EPA approvals for single-bag refuge corn
Paul E Schickler, President, Pioneer.


DES MOINES, US: DuPont’s business Pioneer Hi-Bred, received two US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registrations for products that will help maximize corn yields, simplify regulatory compliance for growers and help preserve in-plant insect protection technology.

Pioneer has received approval for Optimum AcreMax and Optimum AcreMax Xtra insect protection products in corn. Optimum AcreMax marks the industry’s first US approval of a single-bag integrated refuge product that targets only above-ground insects. Both Optimum AcreMax and Optimum AcreMax Xtra products integrate all of a Corn Belt grower’s refuge needs into a single bag.

“We are excited to offer corn growers the broadest line-up of simplified, integrated refuge products. The product will not only help growers maximize corn yields but preserve valuable in-plant insect protection for the future,” said Paul E Schickler, President, Pioneer.

“Our business approach is to work closely with growers to understand their individual needs and help maximize productivity by placing the right product on each acre,” said Schickler.
