Monsanto receives approval of refuge-in-a-bag product

The new Genuity SmartStax RIB Complete is a refuge-in-a-bag product developed by Monsanto and Dow AgroSciences. It allows a grower to plant the entire field to this one product without a separate refuge.

Monsanto just received full regulatory approval for a single-bag refuge product for corn. The product is called Genuity SmartStax RIB Complete and can be planted across a corn grower’s entire field. It is a blend of 95% Genuity SmartStax corn seed and 5% refuge (non-Bt) seed. No separate, structured refuge is needed for either above- or belowground pests in the Corn Belt. Monsanto does caution that growers planting Genuity SmartStax without the RIB Complete will still need a refuge.

The Genuity SmartStax RIB is a combination of corn traits from both Monsanto and Dow AgroSciences. The two companies collaborated on the new product, which includes multiple modes of action for broad-spectrum control of above- and belowground insects, and also offers two herbicide-tolerance traits. It will be fully launched in 2012.

“Farmers have told us they want a true, single-bag refuge solution, and this registration enables Monsanto to deliver,” reports Brett Begemann, Monsanto CCO. “This is a new level of value that hasn’t existed to date, as Genuity SmartStax RIB Complete corn simplifies refuge management by eliminating the structured refuge, which can contribute to timely, more-efficient planting and one-farm productivity.”

These planting schemes are nothing more than regulatory chits enabling the genetic manipulated seed pimps to keep on trucking their zombie food into Canada. It's very sad and troubling that these mutant seeds are allowed to be planted, especially since their mutant DNA, in much the same way Zombies swarm the lands, invariably will migrate and take over adjoining pure fields. But all everyone can think about is money, yield, money, yield. Human or animal health don't enter into this warped Zombie dance rave. It's like everyone from regulators to the farmer interests where, in fact, Zombies. Screw 95 Review
