NEW CORN: Channel is introducing a new line of corn hybrids, with relative maturities ranging from 97 to 115 days.

Channel has introduced a new seed product lineup that provides enhanced disease tolerance. Channel Protexus corn provides tolerance against anthracnose stalk rot, Goss’s wilt and leaf blight, northern corn leaf blight, gray leaf spot and southern rust of corn.

"The new Channel Protexus products provide protection against some of the most financially devastating corn diseases," says Brett Ochs, Channel brand corn product manager. "Along with the knowledge and expertise provided by Channel seedsmen, the disease tolerance provided by Channel Protexus corn is designed to help farmers reduce yield losses associated with corn diseases."

Relative maturity (RM) of the new corn products range from 97-115 RM. The portfolio will be offered in select geographies and treated with Acceleron Seed Applied Solutions ELITE with Enhanced Disease Control, which reduces infections caused by Fusarium, Rhizoctonia and Colletotrichum (the pathogen that leads to anthracnose stalk rot).
