SmartStax® RIB Complete® for broad acre use in longer corn rotations with good performance in zone and north of zone. Long rotation silage choice. Performs extremely well under ideal growing conditions. Large ear that provides strong grain and silage yields. Strong performer across variable soils, excels in Northeast soils. Holds yield even during drought situations. Very strong disease package, possess ASR gene—anthracnose stalk rot gene that keep stalks strong and healthy into late season. Produces high quality silage with good starch digestibility. Double Pro trait package does well on rotated corn acres, should be kept off of long time corn after corn acres as there is no root worm protection, provides dual modes of action for above-ground insects (broad lepidopteran& corn borer), maximum control for corn earworm, no rootworm control.
