Beck's Hybrids Offers Approved Biotech Traits for New BYE Program

December 27, 2007

Atlanta, IN - Beck's Hybrids, a family-owned seed company, located in Atlanta, Indiana announces they have available the approved biotech traits for use in newly released Biotech Yield Endorsement (BYE) program released by Risk Management Agency (RMA) earlier this month. Farmers from Indiana and Illinois can now use specific Beck's Hybrids products to help reduce their crop insurance premiums.

In a report on December 13, 2007 RMA states, "Producers with an individual yield or revenue insurance plan (APH, RA, or CRC) at a buy-up level of Federal crop insurance coverage will be eligible for the discount on any unit in which they plant at least 75 percent of their non-irrigated corn for grain acres to a qualifying corn hybrid. RMA will release the BYE, containing the eligibility criteria, and instructions to approved insurance providers in the near future. This endorsement does not waive or otherwise affect the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) existing refuge requirements. Producers will be expected to be in full compliance with all EPA requirements."

The only qualifying corn hybrids approved for this program are YieldGard® Plus with Roundup Ready® Corn 2 and YieldGard VT Triple. Beck's Hybrids offers farmers over 28 different corn products to meet RMA and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements in this new program.

Scott Beck, Vice President of Beck's Hybrids adds, "Once again, Beck's offers growers more choices in being profitable in their farming operation. At Beck's, our customers can select from a variety of genetics and biotech traits designed to perform best in their specific farming operation."

Growers are encouraged to contact their local Beck's Dealer, District Sales Manager, or Beck's main office at 800-937-2325 to learn more about how many of Beck's products can assist them in meeting the BYE program requirements and reducing their crop insurance premiums.

Beck's Hybrids is a family-owned and operated seed company that serves farmers throughout Indiana and selected counties in Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, and Kentucky. According to a recent media survey, Beck's ranks as the sixth largest seed company in the United States and the only one in the top six that is family-owned, making Beck's the largest retail family-owned seed company in the U.S.
