Pioneer Hi-Bred says it has received Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) approval of its Optimum AcreMax insect protection, which integrates insect control and refuge needs in a single bag.

Optimum AcreMax bags contain 95 per cent of a Pioneer hybrid with Herculex 1 insect protection plus YieldGard corn borer protection and five per cent of a similar non-Bt hybrid to serve as the integrated corn borer refuge. All seed is tolerant to glyphosate .

Pioneer says it has Optimum AcreMax in demonstration plots across Eastern Canada this year, and in 2012, is planning a wide-scale launch in maturities that will cover most of the corn-growing regions across Eastern Canada.
