DuPont business Pioneer Hi-Bred has introduced Optimum Intrasect insect protection products that will allow U.S. corn growers to reduce their structured above-ground refuge to a level of 5 percent in the Corn Belt.


Optimum Intrasect insect protection is a combination of the Herculex I and YieldGard Corn Borer traits that was recently granted approval for a 5 percent structured above-ground refuge by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This is a reduction from the traditional 20 percent structured corn borer refuge.
