Dow AgroSciences has showcased a new refuge-in-the-bag concept at the Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa. The concept, which is pending registration by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), will be commercialized as SmartStax Refuge Advanced and will provide a single-bag solution for refuge compliance in the U.S. Corn Belt as early as 2012.


"By adopting this complete, single-bag solution, growers will save time and reduce complexity related to refuge seed purchase, planning and planting," said Casey Onstot, traits marketing manager for Dow AgroSciences. "It's another example of how Dow AgroSciences continues to bring innovative technologies to market to help growers maximize their whole-farm yield potential."
