Dow AgroSciences is growing its Mycogen Seeds business right in Canada’s corn and soybean country with their state-of-the-art processing facility in Princeton, Ontario, the research farm at St. Mary’s and their dedicated sales team.
"Specific plant characteristics that add value to the growers business are the keys to Mycogen Seeds success," says Virgil Edlin, Dow AgroSciences Eastern Seeds Marketing Manager. Mycogen Seeds extensive line of new innovative seed products and traits has already contributed to the success of many producers.
The Totally Managed Feedstuff’s (TMF) product line is a group of silage specific hybrids designed to offer improved silage production as well as better digestibility and nutritional value.
NatureGard(r) effectively protects top performing Mycogen corn hybrids from the European corn borer (ECB). Mycogen Seeds introduced the industry’s first hybrids resistant to European corn borer.
Mycogen brand Roundup Ready(r) soybeans enhance production efficiency by allowing simple, reliable post control of a broad spectrum of broadleaf weeds and grasses.
Herculex I(tm) (pending registration) is a new Bt trait for protecting the yield potential of new elite Mycogen Seeds corn hybrids. This powerful new Bt trait provides the highest level of control of all generations of the ECB (European corn borer) as well as control of Black Cutworm and Fall Armyworm.
Corn hybrids and new traits will continue to be researched and developed by Dow AgroSciences for the Mycogen Seeds product line to meet grower needs. New trait and germplasm technology will bring solutions to specific production challenges such as insect damage and weed control or even create entirely new market opportunities for Eastern Canadian producers.
