ST. LOUIS — New DEKALB corn and Asgrow soybean products for 2020 feature exclusive genetics, industry-leading trait technologies and strong agronomics to deliver consistent performance and high yield potential.
DEKALB is introducing a total of 28 new products next season. For Illinois and Indiana, new products include DKC59-81RIB, DKC59-82RIB, DKC61-40RIB, DKC61-41RIB, DKC63-90RIB, DKC63-91RIB, DKC 66-17RIB and DKC66-18RIB Brand Blends.
“DEKALB corn products have proven their reliability season after season through high yield numbers across a variety of soils and conditions,” said Jeremy Lake, DEKALB product development manager. “We’re excited about the performance we have seen with our 2020 class, including products developed for Illinois and Indiana farmers.”
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. New products for Illinois and Indiana include AG26X0, AG27X0, AG31X0, AG33X0, AG37X0 and AG39X0 brands that offer maximum yield potential and strong agronomics to 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.
