DuPont Pioneer has announced the introduction of 27 new Optimum AQUAmax products, which doubles the availability of these products from Pioneer. Now, growers ranging from the western to the eastern Corn Belt and north to the Dakotas and Minnesota will have Optimum AQUAmax products to consider for planting.

Growers in geographies where Optimum AQUAmax products are available now have the opportunity to select from a total of 45 corn seed numbers for water-limited environments. Ranging in comparative relative maturity from 89 to 115 CRM, more growers can plant Optimum AQUAmax products on acres annually challenged by water limitations.

“Just about every farm has a field that has a challenging soil type or situation limiting water availability,” said Bob Heimbaugh, North American director of corn product evaluation. “Optimum AQUAmax hybrids continue to thrive in dry periods during a growing season or a full-on drought.”

“Our dedication to robust genetics and long-lasting trait solutions is especially evident this year as our Optimum AQUAmax products were put to the ultimate test in the widespread drought of 2012,” Heimbaugh said.

DuPont Pioneer announced final advancements of 132 new Pioneer brand corn products for 2013, including 36 new genetic platforms. These new products are available to growers for their 2013 planting.
