New DEKALB corn and Asgrow soybean products for 2020 feature exclusive genetics, industry-leading trait technologies and strong agronomic packages for consistent performance and high-yield potential.
DEKALB is introducing a total of 28 new products next season. For 2020, all new DEKALB products and additional top performers seamlessly offer Acceleron Seed Applied ELITE with Enhanced Disease Control. This allows early-to-mid-season disease control without additional cost to farmers.
“DEKALB corn products prove their reliability season after season with high-yield numbers across a variety of soils and conditions,” said Jeremy Lake, DEKALB product development manager. “We’re excited about the performance we’ve seen with this product lineup in trials and look forward to passing on this yield potential to our farmers in 2020.”
Also new for 2020 are four new DEKALB Disease Shield products, bringing the total to 16 products in the 93- to 120-day RM geographies. DEKALB Disease Shield provides enhanced protection against the top five yield-robbing corn diseases – Anthracnose Stalk Rot, Goss’s Wilt, Gray Leaf Spot, Northern Corn Leaf Blight and Southern Rust.
Twenty-six new Asgrow Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybean products are being offered for planting next season. These products offer farmers the potential for maximum yield and consistent performance from strong agronomics that promote late-season intactness.
“Farmers can also benefit from the flexible weed control of the Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System, which proved especially beneficial this season with the wet spring and heavy weed pressure experienced in many areas,” said Asgrow product manager, Tyler Uhe.
