PhytoGen Rolls Out Seven New Enlist Varieties for 2017

PhytoGen is releasing seven new cotton varieties with the Enlist cotton trait and WideStrike 3 Insect Protection for the 2017 growing season.

These new varieties complement the current PhytoGen offering that includes very early to mid- and full-season upland varieties, as well as industry-leading Acala and Pima varieties.

“We’re excited to follow the success of PhytoGen brand PHY 490 W3FE with this broader introduction of W3FE varieties,” says Hank King, U.S. leader for PhytoGen. “With both the Enlist cotton trait and WideStrike 3, these new PhytoGen varieties will help growers eliminate resistant weeds and tough-to-control pests.”

The Enlist cotton trait provides tolerance to glufosinate as well as glyphosate and new 2,4-D choline, the active ingredients in Enlist Duo herbicide. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has proposed to register Enlist Duo for use with Enlist cotton, and registration is expected early in 2017.

WideStrike 3 Insect Protection is the first three-gene insect trait technology that offers improved protection against cotton bollworm. Combined with the Enlist cotton trait, new PhytoGen W3FE varieties provide full tolerance to glufosinate.

Diverse portfolio of varieties
Two of the new 2017 varieties – PHY 220 W3FE and PHY 300 W3FE – are very early and early maturities bred for the unique conditions of the Southwest. They join three varieties introduced in 2016 specifically for West Texas that provide Verticillium wilt tolerance.

The other five new varieties, ranging from early to mid-maturities, are PHY 330 W3FE, PHY 340 W3FE, PHY 380 W3FE, PHY 450 W3FE and PHY 470 W3FE. All were bred to fit areas across the Cotton Belt from South Texas to the Mid-Atlantic, and all contain native traits that provide resistance to bacterial blight.

A long-time leader in the Pima market, PhytoGen is also introducing another new Pima variety with the Genuity Roundup Ready Flex trait for California – PhytoGen brand PHY 888 RF.

“We have more varieties to fit growers’ specific farming needs than ever before,” states King. “Farmers who choose PhytoGen will have even better options to help them thrive in cotton this season. Growers can be confident PhytoGen brand varieties have been bred to perform in their specific geography and agronomic conditions.”

New cash-back rewards program 
PhytoGen Residual Rewards, a new cash-back rewards program for cotton growers, is also being launched in 2017.

“PhytoGen is partnering with Dow AgroSciences crop protection, Syngenta crop protection and Valent U.S.A. Corporation to reward growers for purchasing leading cotton crop protection products used on PhytoGen cottonseed acres,” King says.

Cotton producers are automatically enrolled in PhytoGen Residual Rewards when they purchase their first bag of PhytoGen cottonseed containing a qualifying trait and at least one qualifying crop protection product. To maximize cash rebates, growers should follow a recommended pre-, post- and/or in-season cotton herbicide program.

For more information, growers are urged to contact their local dealer or PhytoGen sales representative, or visit the PhytoGen Residual Rewards website.
