             Thank you for looking at Hefty Brand Corn as an option for your farm.
            SmartStax® is one of the best trait packages in the seed industry today.
With multiple modes of action to stop a wide variety of insects including corn rootworms, chances are you have
already seen the value of this trait on your farm. Here are some management tips to ensure the best experience
from your SmartStax® choices.
  ►► Insects – Keep in mind that SmartStax® has below ground insect protection from multiple Bt traits as well as a
     higher rate of seed treatment insecticide. That may not be enough to stop heavy insect infestations. In many
     cases the bugs must take a bite out of the root before they are controlled. With many, many bites it’s possible
     to see crop injury. Consider using an in-furrow insecticide as well. Products like Capture LFR have come way
     down in price in recent years and are quite affordable.
  ►► Post-emerge Weed Control – SmartStax® hybrids carry herbicide tolerance to both Liberty (glufosinate) and
     Roundup (glyphosate) offering more ways to control tough weeds.
  ►► Use a PRE – Don’t skip the powerful weed control options you have for residual control. Apply them at or
     hopefully before planting.
  ►► Product Choice – If broadleaf weeds are a huge issue, choose a pre-emerge product to address those weeds
     and take many of them out before they even emerge from the soil. Products like Verdict and Resicore are great
     options, but there are many more, as well.
  ►► Multiple Effective Modes of Action – Be sure to use multiple effective modes of action each time you spray
     for weeds. For example, Status is a great post-emerge choice because of it’s broad-spectrum weed control and
     two highly effective modes of action on most weeds. Avoid spraying straight Roundup® or any single mode of
     action as resistant weeds are out there and growing in severity each year.
  ►► Diseases – Watch the Hefty Brand Corn hybrid characteristics chart on pages 4 and 5 and consult the
     management tips for each hybrid. Most hybrids have one disease or another that may require extra protection
     from a fungicide. Many of the diseases will show up in fields after V8 and come during very sensitive growth
     stages. Avoid the use of surfactants or oils with your fungicide applications to protect your crop from arrested
     ear development.
The RIB Complete® versions of VT Double PRO® Corn and SmartStax® hybrids contain a 5% refuge in every bag for
corn (non-cotton) growing areas of the country. These seeds are all tolerant to Roundup (glyphosate) herbicide
and contain no Bt insect traits. The SmartStax® refuge component also carries tolerance to Liberty (glufosinate)
herbicide giving you an extra weed control option in the premium trait package. With refuge-in-a-bag, there’s no
need to plant a separate/structured refuge.

          VT Double PRO® Corn is the most popular trait chosen by Hefty Brand Corn
        customers. Thanks for checking out these hybrids, as well as the DroughtGard®
                       Hybrids with VT Double PRO® RIB Complete®!
                Here are some tips for managing your VT Double PRO® Corn.
 First of all, follow all the management tips on page 6. They also apply to your VT Double PRO® Corn. In addition,
 here are two more to consider.
  ►► Insects – Dropping down from SmartStax® to VT Double PRO® means giving up belowground insect protection
       on pests like corn rootworm. Be sure to use a planting time insecticide like Force, Aztec, or Capture LFR, as
       there is no rescue treatment for corn rootworm.
  ►► Weed Control – If you are used to using Liberty or Roundup in SmartStax® corn, remember VT Double PRO® is
       only tolerant to Roundup®, not Liberty®.
