OPTIMUM® ACREMAX® SYSTEM   
                                                          
  

WHAT IS IT?  

Industry's first insect control solution allowing growers to simplify and reduce their corn rootworm refuge by placing the refuge in the bag.
An in-the-bag product that contains 90% of a hybrid with Herculex® XTRA (HXX/LL/RR2) insect protection, and 10% of a hybrid with the Herculex® 1 trait (HX/LL/RR2), which serves as the corn rootworm refuge. (The 10% refuge seed is treated with Poncho® 1250 and VOTiVOTM.) Allows growers the flexibility to plant corn borer refuge up to 1/2 mile away.
