Why We're Different
Higher whole-farm yield potential
brand corn hybrids with SmartStax
provide higher whole-farm yield potential by reducing the above- and below-ground refuge requirement from 20 percent down to 5 percent.
SmartStax allows growers to protect more acres from damage caused by corn insects, including European corn borer, corn rootworm, corn earworm, fall armyworm, western bean cutworm and black cutworm, through multiple modes of action.
SmartStax also is available in a single-bag refuge solution with Dow AgroSciences

Growers can plant Mycogen brand corn hybrids with SmartStax on 95 percent of their acres. That means more protection on more acres. The
for SmartStax shows the potential economic benefits of planting hybrids with SmartStax.
Hybrids with SmartStax demonstrated an average yield advantage of 11 bushels per acre compared with non-
hybrids under minimal insect pressure, based on yield studies in multiple states.
Broadest-spectrum corn insect control
offer the broadest-spectrum corn insect control ever available — including European corn borer, corn rootworm, corn earworm, fall armyworm, western bean cutworm and black cutworm.
Multiple modes of action
The multiple modes of action in SmartStax are expressed throughout the entire plant. With SmartStax technology, insects are affected in two areas of the midgut instead of just one for improved control and reduced insect resistance concerns. First-generation traits offer only a single mode of action.
Latest plant genetics
Developed in our state-of-the-art
facilities, Mycogen brand
with SmartStax use proven, high-yielding genetics.
Dow AgroSciences innovation
As a co-developer of SmartStax and the company backing Mycogen Seeds, Dow AgroSciences has a long history of developing scientific solutions to increase yield. In 1988, Dow AgroSciences discovered the first Herculex
gene — one of the key technologies contained in Mycogen brand corn hybrids with SmartStax
. Dow AgroSciences and Mycogen Seeds continue to develop corn trait innovations, including a combination of Cry1A105 + Cry2Ab2 + Cry1F to provide broad-spectrum above-ground insect control.
