Driving the Seed Industry to New Heights

We celebrated our second annual Latham Freedom of Independence Ride on August 30, where farmers rode to test plots throughout central Iowa and learned about seed technologies that are helping drive our industry to new heights of crop protection and yield.

Click any of the products or seed technologies below for a brief recap of the field presentations on August 30.

Genuity® SmartStax™ corn hybrids – Genuity SmartStax offer the broadest spectrum of above- and below-ground protection insect protection, combining multiple modes of action for effective control of pests like corn earworm, western bean cutworm and more.

Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® Soybeans – Farmers can enjoy the same flexibility, dependability and crop safety that they have enjoyed for decades with the Roundup Ready soybeans system, but this next generation of Roundup Ready provides more bushels per acre.

LibertyLink® Corn and Soybeans – LibertyLink combines crop safety with built-in tolerance to fast-acting Ignite herbicide, which controls more than 120 broadleaf weeds and grasses including ALS- and glyphosate-resistant weeds.

Agrisure® 3111 GT – The Agrisure Viptera 3111 trait stack offers the broadest available spectrum of above- and below-ground insect control, protecting against quality-robbing insects including corn borer and corn rootworm.
