Dow AgroSciences announced the launch of POWERCORETM in Argentina to control major pests in corn. The innovative technology combines two herbicide-tolerant genes plus three genes resistant to pests of economic importance to Argentina and is the first product approved in Argentina with five genes stacked in corn.

The trait incorporated into Dow AgroSciences' hybrid portfolio will be available for sale in Iate 2012 in Argentina and Brazil. POWERCORE will provide increased corn yield between five and 10 percent depending on the technological level of crops and weather conditions.

"The launch of POWERCORE in Argentina is a significant milestone for our Latin American corn business and is aligned with Dow AgroSciences commitment to continue the introduction of novel biotech products globally," said Rolando Meninato, Global Leader, Seeds, Traits & Oils, for Dow AgroSciences. "POWERCORE enables Argentinean growers' the opportunity to adopt new traits and higher yielding hybrids from Dow AgroSciences."

Through its multiple modes of action, POWERCORE combines the control of major corn pests, such as Fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda), Sugarcane borer (Diatraea saccharalis), Corn earworm (Helicoverpa zea), Corn stalk borer (Elasmopalpus lignosellus) and Black cutworm (Agrotis ipsilon), and tolerance to two types of herbicides - glyphosate and glufosinate.

POWERCORE brings an important advantage to Argentinean corn growers because the refuge area is reduced to five percent instead of the traditional ten percent refuge recommended for other technologies.
