To help preserve the benefits of our trait technology, an Insect Resistance Management (IRM) plan must be part of every farmer’s production strategy.
Farmers who purchase corn products that are not designated as RIB Complete® required to plant a refuge that is appropriate for that product. As part of the IRM plan for RIB Complete corn, experts recommend that growers incorporate crop rotations (out of corn), use of pyramided traits for below ground pests and, when appropriate, use of insecticides to minimize selection of resistant populations. Farmers should monitor their RIB Complete corn fields for targeted insect pests and contact their local Monsanto representative, retailer, or Monsanto’s Technical Support line at 1.800.667.4944 if they observe any unusual performance problems.
Seed containing a patented trait can only be used to plant a single commercial crop from which seed cannot be saved and replanted. Examples of seed containing a patented trait include but are not limited to Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybeans, and Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans. Additional information and limitations on the use of these products are provided in the Monsanto Technology Stewardship Agreement, and the Monsanto Technology Use Guide. Canadian and U.S. patents for Monsanto technologies can be found at http://www.monsantotechnology.com.

Thunder Seed recommends the purchase of new seed for a variety of benefits compared to the bin run seed. Input costs are higher for planting bin run versus new certified seed. That cost includes higher seeding rate and loss of seed or shrinking that occurs when cleaning bin run seed. Thunder Seed offers reliable seed supply in many maturities with a set standard of high-quality and high-potential product that has shown to out-yield much higher than in-bin seeds by 6 bushels or more per acre.*
