    Posted by Stine Seed in Products

    One of the newest powerful trait platforms is Stine Agrisure Duracade® brand corn, which is an excellent option for growers experiencing heavy corn rootworm pressure. While growers may have uncertainties about planting Duracade in 2018 because the trait lacks registration in certain international markets, with a stewardship plan in place, growers can still sell their seed in the United States and Canada or utilize it for livestock feeding. Approximately 1,800 locations around the country are accepting Duracade traited corn, making it more convenient for growers across the Corn Belt to sell their crop.

    Not every situation calls for traits. Stine is one of the only corn companies that actively develops NEW conventional genetics to sell to growers. While most seed companies are aligned with a specific line of insect or herbicide-tolerant traits, as an independent seed company, Stine keeps its base breeding program conventional. This allows us to work with any trait or trait provider, while also allowing us to bring brand new conventional genetics to the market. Stine is excited to offer some very promising new conventional lines for 2018, along with conventional versions of some of our most trusted genetics.
