Can I order these products?

  • Customers may now place orders for these new YieldGard VT based products.

When will the YieldGard VT products be available for planting?

  • These new products are currently in production in South America with expected placement in the US about Mid-April 2007.

What will the YieldGard VT Triple cost?

  • YieldGard VT Triple products will qualify (just like other triples) for the $15 per unit Home Run Hybrid Discount as well as other appropriate discounts.  Note: List Prices are still to be announced.

Will the 6197VT qualify for any special programs?

  • The 6197VT will not be one of the 70th Anniversary Celebration products.  However, other appropriate discounts will apply.

What is the supply of these new products?  Can I order as much as I want?

  • Order all you want of these new products.  Allocations may be necessary since the total supply of VT and VT3 products are less than 10% of the current Triple supply.

How is the VT Triple different from the YG Plus/RR2 corn products?

  • The VT stands for VecTran technology which combines Roundup Ready Corn 2 and YieldGard Rootworm into a single DNA insertion process.  This more efficient process results in improved consistency in trait expression.
