Optimum® Intrasect® Insect Protection
- Optimum® Intrasect® insect protection is a combination of two proven and trusted insect protection traits – Herculex® I and YieldGard® Corn Borer.
- Optimum Intrasect products from DuPont Pioneer deliver a choice to reduce refuge, maximize yield and preserve valuable Bt technology.
- Hybrids are developed locally to deliver maximum performance on your farm in a wide range of conditions.
Delivering the lowest refuge level available:
- 5% in the Corn Belt
- 20% in EPA-designated cotton counties
By combining the highly effective Herculex I and YieldGard Corn Borer traits, Optimum Intrasect insect protection allows growers to reduce the amount of above-ground refuge and plant more insect protection on more acres.
Growers have come to trust the performance of the Herculex I and YieldGard Corn Borer traits for broad-spectrum protection of their yields. The combination of these traits in our elite corn hybrids will help deliver performance on more of a grower’s acres – both in the field and at harvest.
Combining traits for above-ground insect protection helps create opportunities to minimize the risk of insect resistance and maximize the viability of in-plant protection in the future.
