Is convenience and simplicity enough to make refuge-in-a-bag (RIB) corn seed products a favourite choice for Ontario corn growers? Greg Stewart thinks so.
Stewart, Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs corn specialist, predicts RIB products that deliver 95 per cent insect-protected seed and five per cent refuge seed in the same bag “will get significant traction” with Ontario corn growers.
