Beck’s is excited to add two new corn technologies to our robust offering for the 2020 planting season. PowerCore® and Qrome® will give farmers additional options for controlling above- and below- ground insects plus added genetic options for higher yield potential. PowerCore has received full import approval into key export markets, including China and the European Union. Qrome has also received approval into most export markets and is expecting European Union approval. The chart to the right details the two technologies and their approval status.
