Farmers need superior technology to feed a growing world, and Dow AgroSciences LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company, continues to provide it through products like Powercore, a new corn trait technology, that just received registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This innovative trait technology will provide the latest above-ground insect protection in corn via three different modes of action. Powercore Refuge Advanced will be launched as early as the 2015 growing season.

It will be offered as a refuge-in-the-bag product for planting convenience and refuge compliance, and will be stacked with the latest in herbicide-tolerant technology, pending regulatory approvals. Corn growers can expect to see Powercore in future demonstration plots. Dow AgroSciences previously launched Powercore in Brazil and Argentina in 2012, and the product is excelling in the marketplace as farmers look for sustainable solutions that help them maximize yield.

“Having product options is important to corn growers, and Powercore will be an outstanding choice for growers looking for superior above-ground pest control,” says Ben Kaehler, U.S. Seeds general manager, Dow AgroSciences. “Powercore will control a wide range of yield-robbing insects so growers can get the most out of every corn acre.”

Complementary to the company’s SmartStax technology, Powercore will offer the broadest above-ground spectrum of insect control available, multiple modes of action for improved efficacy, and be offered in the latest and most elite genetics. A 5 percent refuge in the Corn Belt and 20 percent in the Cotton Belt is another key attribute farmers will appreciate.
