SurveyGrowers satisfied with Herculex pest protection

A survey of more than 400 corn producers across the Corn Belt found that Herculex Insect Protection in-plant traits perform well against four key insects -- European corn borer (ECB), corn rootworm (CRW), western bean cutworm (WBCW) and black cutworm (BCW).

Corn growers who have used either Herculex I Insect Protection for above-ground pests like ECB, WBCW or BCW or Herculex XTRA Insect Protection for those insects plus CRW were asked to rate the performance of HERCULEX versus those insects.

According to a company report, of the corn producers surveyed, 99% said they were satisfied with ECB performance; 98% for CRW and WBCW; and 97% for BCW.

According to the survey, the share of insect trait users planting Herculex hybrids is likely to increase from 19% in 2004 to 40% in 2007.
