Dow debuts PowerCore maize in Argentina
Dow AgroSciences has launched its herbicide-tolerant and insect-resistant PowerCore maize (MON89034xNK603xTC1507) in Argentina. The Dow/Monsanto-developed line was approved for sale last month ( Agrow No 645, p 20). It combines Dow’s Herculex I for tolerance to glufosinate herbicide and Monsanto’s Genuity VT Double Pro for glyphosate herbicide tolerance, with both providing protection against above-ground lepidopteran pests. The maize planting season starts next month.
