Genuity DroughtGard Hybrids
​​Do More With Less Water​

Genuity® DroughtGard® Hybrids​

The world's first and only drought-tolerant biotechnology trait for corn, Genuity® DroughtGard® Hybrids products are designed to help corn plants resist drought stress and minimize the risk associated with one key, unpredictable factor: The weather.

Features & Benefits

Maximize Yield Potential in Drought Conditions

Maximize Yield Potential in Drought Conditions

The DroughtGard Hybrids trait is a part of a systems approach that combines best agronomic recommendations, germplasm selected for top-end yield potential and superior drought-tolerance characteristics. The DroughtGard Hybrids gene helps the plant create proteins that are essential for growth, helping to support yield opportunity when water is scarce.



When drought hits, Hydroefficiency allows the corn plant to conserve water and use water more efficiently, until the next rain. Formulated for maximum Hydroefficiency, DroughtGard Hybrids give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have the potential for greater yield in drought conditions.
