GENESEO, Ill. – Corn growers in Illinois, Iowa and surrounding areas can take advantage of the highest-performing genetics and the latest advancements in seed technology with Wyffels Hybrids. The company rolled out 27 new products, including 12 new base genetics, for 2013.
The new products include conventional hybrids, as well as hybrids featuring Genuity® VT Double PRO®, Genuity® VT Triple PRO®, Genuity® SmartStax®, and Roundup Ready® Corn 2 traits. Hybrids with Genuity VT Double PRO and Genuity SmartStax traits are available as Wyffels Refuge in Bag (RIB).
“We continually focus on improving our genetics in each new class of elite hybrids we develop,” said Fritz Behr, vice president of research at Wyffels Hybrids. “These new hybrids have proven they perform with improved yield potential, excellent agronomics and consistency across diverse conditions and environments. We are committed to bringing our customers seed solutions that can help their operations be more profitable, and that are among the most advanced on the market today.”
The new Wyffels RIB products are a single-bag blend of 95 percent traited hybrid with 5 percent refuge seed. No separate, structured refuge is required where this technology is planted.
“The single bag solution to refuge compliance allows growers to minimize on-farm hassles and save time during the planting season,” Behr said. “We offer three Wyffels RIB products for 2012, and are proud to bring eleven new Wyffels RIB products to the market in 2013.”
