What’s New for CROPLAN Seed in 2022?
More protection for your corn cropStarting next season, all CROPLAN hybrids will include Fortivent® Plus seed treatment.1 Fortivent Plus combines the early-season insect control of Poncho® VoTiVo® seed treatment, ethaboxam fungicide for enhanced pythium control and Fortivent Zn for early corn development, including stand establishment and improved yield potential. We're one of the only seed brands in the industry to offer zinc as a standard treatment on all commercial hybrids to promote early-season growth and root development. In addition to a premium seed treatment to safeguard your investment, you can also rest assured knowing that a 100% replant policy backs your CROPLAN hybrids.2
You will have access to a new above-ground insect trait for select CROPLAN hybrids next season. The Trecepta® Technology trait offers three modes of action against corn borers, fall armyworm, western bean cutworm, black cutworm and corn earworm to protect yield potential and grain quality.
CROPLAN hybrids deliver another layer of protection and risk management with management recommendations generated from Answer Plot® data. Your CROPLAN dealer can help recommend the most suitable seed products for your acres based upon your biggest agronomic challenges and management preferences. We deliver comprehensive data about a hybrid’s response to fungicide, population, crop rotation and nitrogen to help ensure you’ve got the information you need to optimize your crop’s potential.

Better selection for your soybean cropOne thing that sets CROPLAN soybeans apart from competitors is our comprehensive portfolio of traits, genetics and technology tools. We’re focused on helping you find the most suitable soybean variety for your acres, and we do that by sourcing the best genetics and traits from our industry partners. That means you’ll have more choices and the reliable management data you need to optimize your crop’s potential.
This year, you will see more options for XtendFlex® soybeans in the CROPLAN lineup. We’ve expanded the maturity range, quality and diversity of our XtendFlex genetics to offer farmers more weed control flexibility and improved agronomics.
CROPLAN seed offers more choice from a trait and genetics perspective, but we also deliver more options for you to manage risk and optimize yield potential on variable fields. Our WinPak® soybean varieties combine complementary products into one bag to help you achieve excellent yield potential on productive acres while maintaining top performance on more challenging ground. Whether you’re looking for a premium product like WinPak varieties or a single soybean variety, CROPLAN seed delivers more options to meet your budget and address your agronomic challenges.
When you do business with CROPLAN seed, you can expect high quality products backed by data and management recommendations from the Answer Plot program to help set you up for in-season success.
