DuPont has received registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for Optimum AcreMax XTreme insect protection for corn. Optimum AcreMax XTreme adds to DuPont business Pioneer Hi-Bred’s lineup of single-bag solutions to deliver insect control and simplified refuge management for growers. 

"Optimum AcreMax XTreme is the right product for growers who need enhanced above- and below-ground insect control and simplified refuge management on their acres,” said Paul Schickler, Pioneer president. "Growers need proven technology to defend their crop against insect damage, while receiving overall agronomic performance. Optimum AcreMax XTreme joins a very successful lineup of other simplified refuge Pioneer brand products.”

Optimum AcreMax XTreme products integrate 95 percent of a high-yielding Pioneer brand corn hybrid containing Herculex XTRA insect protection. This is combined with YieldGard Corn Borer insect protection and the Agrisure RW trait and 5 percent of a similar non-Bt hybrid with herbicide tolerance to serve as the integrated refuge. All Optimum AcreMax XTreme products offer built-in herbicide tolerance.

Pioneer will introduce Optimum AcreMax XTreme products across multiple hybrid platforms for the 2013 growing season. This year Pioneer will place Optimum AcreMax XTreme products in Impact (Intensively Managed Product Advancement, Characterization and Training) plots across the United States and Canada. This innovative program offers customers and Pioneer sales professionals the opportunity to view and select the best products to fit their unique growing environments. Pioneer Impact plots are planted in local customers’ acres and are a key data source to support product commercialization. 

Optimum AcreMax XTreme insect protection products were approved by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) in November 2011.
