When Monsanto told us about the benefits of offering Genuity VT Triple PRO to our customers, I was skeptical. “Isn’t that going to raise seed prices even more?” I thought. “Is the increase in yield great enough to offset the increase in cost?” Golden Acres is committed to offering premium quality seed to southern farmers, but NOT if it doesn’t make financial sense to you or to us. Here’s what we promise:
• Better insect protection— Genuity VT Triple PRO controls a broader spectrum of insects, including corn earworm, corn borer, fall armyworm and rootworm—and reduces the risk of aflatoxin.
• Reduced refuge requirements in cotton-growing areas— planting Genuity VT Triple PRO allows a refuge reduction from 50% down to 20%. You can now protect 80% of your acres from the most damaging insects.
• Higher yields—Research data shows Genuity VT Triple PRO increases yields, as much as 20 bushels per acre in most Southern locations.
20 bushels per acre sounds good, and preliminary testing has backed up those numbers. The key to this new technology is pairing it with the right genetics—those best adapted to this region. Golden Acres has incorporated Genuity VT Triple PRO in proven genetic platforms scientifically selected for top performance in the South. Plus, we’re developing a value calculator, adjusted to your farming operation and local conditions, to enable you to determine if Genuity VT Triple PRO can make you more money.
We understand you’re skeptical. We were too. Let us show you what convinced us.
