Farmers now have two products available for simplified refuge on their farms: Genuity® SmartStax® RIB Complete® and Genuity® VT Double PRO® RIB Complete™.
These single-bag products eliminate the hassle of planting a separate structured refuge. With Genuity® RIB Complete™ products, the appropriate amount of refuge seed a farmer needs in corn-growing areas has already been blended in the bag -- with the Bt seed.
That means with one bag of seed, farmers plant their refuge and their corn crop. That means they no longer need to plant a separate refuge for their corn crop. That means refuge compliance is on Monsanto's shoulders, not farmers'.
It's efficient. It's convenient. It's ensuring insect resistance management.

Genuity VT Double PRO RIB Complete: The second Genuity RIB Complete product to market is a blend of 95 percent Genuity® VT Double PRO™ and 5 percent refuge seed, delivering the lowest refuge in the corn-growing area* for above-ground insect protection.
