Traits and Technologies

AM*: Available through the G2® Genetics brand, the industry’s first above ground insect control solution which allows cornbelt growers to simplify and reduce refuge in one bag. Two different modes of action against corn borers (Mon810 & TC1507) allow for a reduced refuge of only 5%. The refuge hybrid is blended in-the-bag with the Bt hybrid component to create an integrated refuge for above ground pests.

AMX*: Available through the G2® Genetics brand, the industry’s first above and below ground insect control solution which allows cornbelt growers to simplify and reduce refuge in one bag. Two different modes of action against corn borers: YieldGard® Corn Borer  (Mon810) pyramided with Herculex® XTRA traits (TC1507 & DAS59122-7) resulting in a 10% refuge product. The refuge hybrid component is treated with a high rate of Seed-Applied Insecticide and is blended in-the-bag with the Bt hybrid component stack to create a fully integrated refuge for both above and below ground pests.

AMXT*: Available through the G2® Genetics brand, the industry’s best above and below ground insect control solution which allows growers to simplify and reduce refuge in one bag. Two different modes of action against corn borers (Mon810 & TC1507) pyramided with two different modes of action against corn rootworm (MIR604 & DAS59122-7) resulting in a 5% refuge product. The refuge hybrid component is treated with a high rate of Seed-Applied Insecticide and is blended in-the-bag with the Bt hybrid component stack to create a fully integrated refuge for both above and below ground pests.

 

GT: Agrisure® GT (GA21 event) provides exceptional tolerance to in-crop applications of glyphosate-based herbicides.
GT/LFY: Agrisure® GT (GA21 event) stacked with the Leafy gene (native trait) to create hybrids bred for improved fiber digestibility as well as softer cobs, kernels and increased tonnage. Fully tolerant to glyphosate applications.

 

GT/CB/LL: The Agrisure® GT trait (GA21 event) for exceptional tolerance to in-crop applications of glyphosate based herbicides combines with Agrisure® CB/LL (Bt11 event) for season long control of corn borer & Liberty® herbicide tolerance.

 

 

GT/CB/LL/RW: Syngenta’s Agrisure® 3000GT trait stack delivers major yield enhancements from above (Bt11) and below ground (MIR604 event) insect protection as well as the full flexibility of using either Liberty® or glyphosate herbicides.

 

 

HX: Herculex® I (TC1507 Event) hybrids provide superior above ground insect protection along with full Liberty® herbicide flexibility.

 

 

HXT: Herculex® XTRA (TC1507/DAS59122-7 event stack) is a three-way, above-and below ground stack with broad spectrum, in-plant protection from the most common corn insect pests. It creates an excellent continuous corn option for growers by combining protection against above and below-ground pests along with Liberty® tolerance.

 

 


 

 

RR2:  Roundup Ready® Corn 2 (NK603 event) hybrids that deliver simple, cost effective and unsurpassed weed control.

 

 

 

RR2/HX:  Roundup Ready®/Herculex® I (NK603/TC1507 event stack) hybrids combine dependable above-ground insect protection along with tolerance to both glyphosate and Liberty® herbicides.

 

 

RR2/HX/RW:  Herculex® I/Agrisure® RW (TC1507/MIR604 event stack) hybrids combine the powerful above ground pest control of the Herculex® I technology with the below ground pest control of the Agrisure® RW trait. When stacked with the Roundup Ready® trait (NK603),
you also have glyphosate herbicide tolerance.

 

 

RR2/HXT:  Herculex® XTRA is a three-way, above-and below-ground stack with broad spectrum, in-plant protection from the most common corn insect pests. By combining above and below-ground insect protection along with Liberty® tolerance, Herculex® XTRA hybrids are an excellent continuous corn option. Stack the Herculex® XTRA trait with Roundup Ready® trait (NK603) and you have one powerful insect and weed control tool.

 

Conventional:  (No Suffix).


Glyphosate Tolerant (NK603 & GA21)

Everyone has weed pressure, which makes glyphosate tolerance an important consideration for any seed purchase decision. Glyphosate tolerance helps maximize your yield potential by delivering simple, convenient, and cost-effective weed control. With greater than 80% of the 2013 corn acres expected to be planted to glyphosate tolerant hybrids, it should come as no surprise that NuTech Seed has significantly increased total volume of glyphosate tolerant hybrids we will offer for sale. We encourage customers to put this powerful production system to work on their farms!

LibertyLink® Hybrids

Liberty® is a post-emergence herbicide offering broad-spectrum, systemic, non-selective weed control in corn with unsurpassed crop safety. Liberty provides fast grass and broadleaf weed control in as little as three days controlling over 120 grass and broadleaf weeds, including some of the toughest weeds, such as woolly cupgrass, waterhemp, velvetleaf, and wild proso millet. Liberty also has no herbicide carryover for sensitive crops such as potatoes or sugarbeets that may be planted in rotation with corn. Liberty can be used on any corn hybrid containing the LibertyLink® herbicide system from planting until 36 inches of height. Drops are suggested when corn is over 24 inches tall or has reached the V-7 stage of growth (i.e., seven developed collars), whichever comes first.

Agrisure® GT/CB/LL

All NuTech Seed Agrisure GT/CB/LL hybrids provide season long, whole plant protection from all generations of European corn borer. Agrisure GT/CB/LL hybrids also provide the herbicide flexibility of both the LibertyLink® and glyphosate tolerant herbicide systems. These insect protection traits offer healthier plants and increased yields that provide lower levels of ear mold, improved crop safety and enhanced safety of corn for human and animal feed.

Herculex® I/Roundup Ready® Corn 2

G2® Genetics Herculex I insect protected hybrids offer one of the most advanced in-plant insect protection traits available for corn. This powerful trait provides NuTech Seed hybrids with full-season, full-plant, broad-spectrum insect protection from Western bean cutworm, black cutworm, European corn borer, southwestern corn borer, fall armyworm, and also offers intermediate suppression of corn earworm. While all corn is vulnerable to insect pests throughout the growing season, early-planted corn is more susceptible to first generation European corn borer and black cutworm. Late-planted corn is more severely damaged by second generation European corn borer, southwestern corn borer, fall armyworm and corn earworm. Since Herculex I helps limit damage and stress from these insect pests, it helps to ensure your hybrids reach their maximum yield potential, regardless of the planting date. Hybrids containing Herculex I insect protection are also tolerant to Liberty® herbicide providing the added benefit of outstanding weed control and excellent crop safety.

Herculex® Xtra & Agrisure® 3000GT

NuTech Seed prides itself in offering choice. As such, we offer hybrids with protection from corn rootworms containing either the powerful binary protein Herculex® XTRA technology from Dow AgroSciences and DuPont Pioneer along with hybrids containing Syngenta's Agrisure® 3000GT technology. As a result, NuTech Seed customers have their choice of some of the highest yielding, most agronomically stable hybrids available in the industry that  provide both above ground and below ground pest protection.

All NuTech Seed Agrisure GT/CB/LL hybrids provide season long, whole plant protection from all generations of European corn borer. Agrisure GT/CB/LL hybrids also provide the herbicide flexibility of both the LibertyLink® and glyphosate tolerant herbicide systems. These insect protection traits offer healthier plants and increased yields that provide lower levels of ear mold, improved crop safety and enhanced safety of corn for human and animal feed.
