Corteva Agriscience recently announced the launch of Qrome products across the U.S. Corn Belt. According to the company, Qrome hybrids have earned the trust of American producers for consistent performance and have produced high yields by combining top-tier genetics, strong defensive traits and advanced seed treatments.
Introductory quantities of Qrome products will be available in the Pioneer brand for 2019 planting across expanded geographies in the U.S. Corn Belt. For the 2020 growing season, Qrome products are planned across a wide range of genetic platforms and maturities in Corteva Agriscience seed brands.
Farmers who planted Pioneer brand Qrome products as part of limited launch in 2017 and 2018 across the Western U.S. Corn Belt reported strong performance and high yields.
Qrome products offer an optimized balance of insect protection and agronomic performance and feature a novel molecular stack of multiple insect protection traits and include two modes of action to control corn rootworm.
Pioneer brand Qrome products have consistently delivered an average 5.5 bushel yield advantage over legacy triple-stack technology in multi-year research trials. In 2018 on-farm trials, Qrome products held an average 10.2 bushel per acre advantage over all competitive products tested.
