Silage Traits and Technology
At Legacy Seeds, Inc. we believe in offering choices to corn silage producers to meet the needs of their dairy or livestock operation. Our RATION CHOICE™ HYBRID (RCH) system allows you, as the producer, to choose which silage system works best for your farm. Our corn silage product portfolio gives you the opportunity to choose from high yielding and high forage quality Flexible Acre varieties, highly digestible and high energy Brown Mid Rib varieties and high yielding and ration flexible Leafy silage varieties.
|The Agrisure® 3000GT trait stack offers better control of corn borer and corn rootworm with tolerance to both glyphosate and glufosinate herbicides.|
|The Agrisure® GT trait provides excellent tolerance to in-crop applications of glyphosate based herbicides. This hybrid is an excellent option for refuge acres in a structured refuge operation.|
|Roundup Ready® Corn 2 contains in-plant tolerance to Roundup® brand herbicides, enabling growers to spray Roundup® brands over the top, from planting through the V8 stage or 30-inch corn height, with excellent crop safety and no yield reduction. Compared to popular conventional corn programs, the Roundup Ready® Corn 2 system costs less, while allowing hybrids to reach their maximum yield potential. While the U.S. regulatory agencies have given full approval to Roundup Ready® Corn 2 for commerce in the U.S. for marketing and consumption as food, food ingredients and feed for livestock, certain regulatory approvals are pending in certain export markets. For more information on these approvals, or for assistance in locating domestic grain outlets, see the American Seed Trade Association website or contact Monsanto directly at 800-768-6387.|
