The innovation pipeline for Pioneer Seed includes a continued focus on its Qrome corn products. Qrome currently has dual modes of action for below-ground and above-ground pests. Corn Product Marketing Manager Scott Walker says a third mode of action is being developed. “That will be out with a few trial units in 2022 and it’ll expand more in 2023, especially in the earlier maturies,” said Walker. “Beyond that, we’re working on new traits for corn rootworm and that’s a ways down the road. We’re also looking to bring Enlist into our corn lineup and that’s probably 2023 or 2024.”
