New application for planning corn refuge

NCGA has launched a new application that helps producers plan their corn refuge.

A new Insect Resistance Management refuge calculator is available to assist producers in calculating their corn refuge requirements.

The calculator includes all commercial Bt products on the market and features a trait selection process that allows farmers to run several planting scenarios on a field-by-field basis.

You can download the NCGA calculator here: www.irmcalculator.com.
Industry experts from the Agricultural Biotechnology Stewardship Technical Committee, which is made up of representatives from Dow AgroSciences LLC, Monsanto Company, Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Inc., and Syngenta Seeds Inc., were consulted in developing the new and improved calculator.

The refuge calculator is a tool that should be used in conjunction with the applicable seed manufacturer's Stewardship Guide, which explains acceptable refuge configurations.
