Genuity® DroughtGard® Hybrids​​​​​​​​​​​​​



Genuity® DroughtGard® Hybrids are part of a systems approach combining best agronomic recommendations, germplasm selected for top-end yield potential and superior drought-tolerance characteristics, and the world’s first drought-tolerant biotechnology trait for corn. Using hydroefficiency, this advanced systems approach allows the plant to use water more efficiently to help provide yield opportunity and manage risk associated with one key unpredictable factor, the weather.

Genuity® DroughtGard® Hybrids are designed to help the plant adapt to drought stress, use available soil moisture efficiently and provide the opportunity to help minimize yield loss from drought.

We are pleased to inform you that the biotech trait in Genuity DroughtGard Hybrids has received all import approvals in key export markets with functioning regulatory systems. All grain marketing commitments agreed to in your accepted Genuity DroughtGard Hybrids Grower Agreement are no longer required as grain will no longer be required to remain in the domestic market. All other components of the grower’s MTSA (Monsanto Technology Stewardship Agreement) remain in place.

*2013 Monsanto Trials across the Western Great Plains. Data as of November 6, 2013. All comparisons are head-to-head comparisons using +/- 2 RMs and calculated using 15% moisture. Data represents weighted average results of leading Genuity® DroughtGard® Hybrids products vs. DuPont Pioneer® Optimum® AQUAmax® and Syngenta Agrisure Artesian™ products.
