Pioneer Hi-Bred releases 108 new corn products for 2011

Pioneer Hi-Bred, a DuPont business, is releasing 108 new Pioneer® brand corn hybrids and integrated refuge products for growers across North America for the 2011 planting season.

The 2011 corn lineup from Pioneer features three industry-leading releases:

  • The first class of Optimum® AcreMaxTM 1 (AM1) insect protection includes 38 new AM1 products, which offers an in-the-bag, integrated and reduced refuge solution for corn rootworm (CRW) and allows growers the flexibility to plant the required corn borer refuge up to one-half mile away.
  • The first class of Optimum® AcreMaxTM RW (AMRW) insect protection includes 13 new AMRW products, which offers growers the opportunity to utilize integrated CRW technology on all their acres when used as a refuge for corn borer.
  • The first class of Optimum® AQUAmaxTM includes five new families and eight new hybrids to help growers minimize risk and maximize productivity under drought stress conditions.
