New Corn Seed Available For 2018

Enlist™ corn will be commercially available in Canada for the 2018 growing season.

Dow AgroSciences announced the launch Wednesday after the Ministry of Agriculture of the People’s Republic of China approved the import of grain produced from corn containing the Enlist trait.

Tim Hassinger is the president and CEO of Dow AgroSciences and says the company is excited to bring the Enlist system to farmers in the U.S. and Canada.

The new seed packages weed control and insect protection.

Dow AgroSciences will also outlicense the PowerCore Enlist trait technology.
