Glyphosate Tolerant (NK603 & GA21)
Everyone has weed pressure, which makes glyphosate tolerance an important consideration for any seed purchase decision. Glyphosate tolerance helps maximize your yield potential by delivering simple, convenient, and cost-effective weed control. With greater than 80% of the 2013 corn acres expected to be planted to glyphosate tolerant hybrids, it should come as no surprise that NuTech has significantly increased total volume of glyphosate tolerant hybrids we will offer for sale. We encourage customers to put this powerful production system to work on their farms!
Liberty® is a post-emergence herbicide offering broad-spectrum, systemic, non-selective weed control in corn with unsurpassed crop safety. Liberty provides fast grass and broadleaf weed control in as little as three days controlling over 120 grass and broadleaf weeds, including some of the toughest weeds, such as woolly cupgrass, waterhemp, velvetleaf, and wild proso millet. Liberty also has no herbicide carryover for sensitive crops such as potatoes or sugarbeets that may be planted in rotation with corn. Liberty can be used on any corn hybrid containing the LibertyLink® herbicide system from planting until 36 inches of height. Drops are suggested when corn is over 24 inches tall or has reached the V-7 stage of growth (i.e., seven developed collars), whichever comes first.
All NuTech Agrisure GT/CB/LL hybrids provide season long, whole plant protection from all generations of European corn borer. Agrisure GT/CB/LL hybrids also provide the herbicide flexibility of both the LibertyLink® and glyphosate tolerant herbicide systems. These insect protection traits offer healthier plants and increased yields that provide lower levels of ear mold, improved crop safety and enhanced safety of corn for human and animal feed.
Herculex® I/Roundup Ready® Corn 2
G2® Genetics Herculex I insect protected hybrids offer one of the most advanced in-plant insect protection traits available for corn. This powerful trait provides NuTech hybrids with full-season, full-plant, broad-spectrum insect protection from Western bean cutworm, black cutworm, European corn borer, southwestern corn borer, fall armyworm, and also offers intermediate suppression of corn earworm. While all corn is vulnerable to insect pests throughout the growing season, early-planted corn is more susceptible to first generation European corn borer and black cutworm. Late-planted corn is more severely damaged by second generation European corn borer, southwestern corn borer, fall armyworm and corn earworm. Since Herculex I helps limit damage and stress from these insect pests, it helps to ensure your hybrids reach their maximum yield potential, regardless of the planting date. Hybrids containing Herculex I insect protection are also tolerant to Liberty® herbicide providing the added benefit of outstanding weed control and excellent crop safety.
Herculex® Xtra & Agrisure® 3000GT
NuTech prides itself in offering choice. As such, we offer hybrids with protection from corn rootworms containing either the powerful binary protein Herculex® XTRA technology from Dow AgroSciences and DuPont Pioneer along with hybrids containing Syngenta's Agrisure® 3000GT technology. As a result, NuTech customers have their choice of some of the highest yielding, most agronomically stable hybrids available in the industry that provide both above ground and below ground pest protection.
