Optimum® AcreMax™ 1 Insect Protection is the next step in Pioneer Hi-Bred’s commitment to delivering customers more effective and efficient below and above ground insect control solutions. Supported by 5 years of continued research on the unique characteristics of our rootworm trait, Optimum AcreMax 1 is a new product offering that maximizes yield protection while extending the durability of the trait. Pending regulatory approval, Optimum AcreMax 1 will be the first corn rootworm solution that offers both a reduction in the amount of structured refuge and refuge-in-the-bag for added grower convenience and simplified refuge compliance. This poster summarizes the development of Optimum AcreMax 1.
