Corn-Trait-Technology

Beck's is dedicated to equipping farmers with the right hybrids for the right field. This corn technologies chart acts as a guide to the available traits and stacks.

Regional selection means that we identify and launch products specific to your geography, weather patterns, and soil types. We know that producers are not "a one size fits all" from east to west and north to south. Beck's product selection is driven to find the highest performing products in each unique region across our marketing area. 

Through our intensive testing and field observations, Beck's is able to capture regional differences to deliver additional yield on your farm. Region by region, we make product recommendations based on specific factors affecting your area.

# Various factors, including pest pressure, reduced susceptibility, and insect resistance in some pest populations may affect efficacy of certain corn technology products in some regions. To help extend durability of these technologies, we recommend you implement Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices such as crop rotation, cultural and biological control tactics (including rotating sources of Bt-protected corn traits), pest scouting, and appropriate use of pest thresholds when employing management practices such as insecticide application. You must also plant the required refuge when using these technologies. Please contact your sales professional or consult with your local university extension for more information regarding insect resistance management guidelines, best management practices and to understand whether there has been a shift in susceptibility or insect resistance with certain pests documented in your area. 

* Western bean cutworm has been removed from the product use statement for several corn products that contain Herculex® I (Cry1F) but lack another mode of action for western bean cutworm due to a wide-spread decrease in susceptibility indicating the possibility of field-evolved resistance to Cry1F in most geographies. 

** The non-RIB version of SmartStax® may still be planted in the cotton-growing area of the U.S. provided that growers plant the additional 20% non-Bt structured refuge. All scores of integrated refuge products are based upon the major component.
