Corteva AgriScience has commercially launched PowerCore Enlist Refuge Advanced corn seed.
PowerCore Enlist corn seed will be available for planting in the 2024 growing season in the US and Canada. Farmers will have the added flexibility of integrated refuge, along with an advanced combination of above-ground pest control, herbicide tolerance, and industry-leading genetics with PowerCore Enlist RA corn.
“This is yet another example of Corteva Agriscience delivering strong traits to farmers, giving them new options, and now offering the flexibility of integrated refuge,” stated Tim Glenn, the Executive Vice President of the Seed Business Unit for Corteva Agriscience. “We are putting the power directly in the hands of farmers, so they not only have a single-bag solution, but they can purchase quality Corteva traits from their preferred seed supplier.”
With three modes of action, PowerCore Enlist RA corn technology protects against key susceptible above-ground pests.
Additionally, the product allows for ultimate weed management versatility with tolerance to 2,4-D choline, glyphosate, glufosinate, and FOP herbicides.
Enlist 1 and Enlist Duo herbicides are the only 2,4-D choline formulations that are approved for use on PowerCore Enlist RA. These products stay on target, have near-zero volatility, and reduce the potential for drift compared to dicamba and traditional 2,4-D formulations.
In addition to being available through US Corteva seed brands—including Pioneer, Brevant seeds, AgVenture, Dairyland Seed, Hoegemeyer, NuTech Seed, and Seed Consultants—PowerCore Enlist RA trait technology will be available through authorized independent seed companies.
In Canada, the product will be marketed as PowerCore Enlist corn and will be available through Pioneer and Brevant seed brands.
PowerCore Enlist RA corn will be available in a diverse lineup of genetics across a wide range of maturities. Like all products developed through Corteva’s R&D programs, the PowerCore Enlist RA corn must pass rigorous evaluation in several testing locations. By testing characteristics like root and stalk strength, late-season standability, and disease tolerance, farmers can rest assured they have a whole-farm solution.
