The Mycogen Seeds ethanol product lineup features superior yield protection technologies such as HERCULEX® XTRA Insect Protection and the latest in weed control options.

“As industry projections predict the demand for corn for ethanol to more than double in the next decade, growers need to arm themselves with high-yielding and highly fermentable corn hybrids. We have a full lineup of highly fermentable corn hybrids with powerful traits to protect growers’ yield all season long,” says Dave Schumacher, Marketing Specialist, Mycogen Seeds.

Growing MYCOGEN brand highly fermentable corn hybrids can offer growers many potential benefits including competitive agronomics and increased yield.

In addition, many of the corn hybrids in the ethanol lineup also meet the Processor Preferred® standard for ethanol production.
