Latham Offers More Refuge Hybrids for 2013 Planting
In early September, the EPA gave final approval for Genuity® VT Triple PRO® RIB Complete®. Genuity VT3 PRO has been our top-selling trait, so we’re excited that it will now be much easier for farmers planting these hybrids to comply with refuge requirements.
Latham® hybrids with VT Triple PRO RIB Complete offers farmers dual modes-of-action for protection against above-ground insects, a single mode-of-action for corn rootworm protection and herbicide tolerance. Plus, it’s extremely convenient as the single-bag solution is a blend of 90% VT Triple Pro with 10% of the corn carrying the Roundup Ready trait.
