U.S. farmers in the Corn-Growing Area now have another single-bag option for managing above- and below-ground pests.
VT Triple PRO RIB Complete offers dual modes of action to protect against corn earworm and other above-ground pests, with an additional mode of action against below-ground pests. No more calculations, no more planting and maintenance of separate, structured refuge in the Corn Growing Area.
Genuity VT Triple PRO RIB Complete offers farmers dual modes-of-action for protection against corn earworm and other above-ground pests, with an additional mode of action against below-ground pests. Also, since it’s a RIB Complete® brand corn blend, it has a mix of 90% insect-protected seed and 10% refuge seed right in the bag. It is a great fit in geographies experiencing low-to-moderate rootworm pressure.
The product helps farmers simplify the planting process while delivering peace of mind for refuge compliance. The convenience benefits of a refuge-in-a-bag system include:
- Simplification in crop planning, inventories and seed handling
- Built in compliance with refuge requirements
- Ultimately increased compliance with the refuge requirements.
In July 2013, Monsanto’s Genuity VT Triple PRO RIB Complete received a two-year registration extension from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, further extending this registration to September 30, 2015. The extension provides continued consumer confidence in the production and sale of Genuity VT Triple PRO RIB Complete and supports Monsanto’s ongoing efforts to simplify refuge compliance with desirable single-bag RIB Complete products. With all EPA registrations, Monsanto will submit amendments to extend this registration at the appropriate time.
