As the 2017 field season winds down, and the snow begins to pile up, we all have in the back of our minds the 2018 planting season. One question that comes to mind is "which seed should I choose for my farm"? For corn, there are many traits available, making the decision confusing. To help you determine which seed is a good fit for your farm, The Handy Bt Trait Table was developed. This 2 page doument provides trait names and details of trait packages in an organized, easy to read format. This year’s table was authored by Dr. Chris DiFonzo at Michigan State University with contributions by Drs. Kelley Tilmon (OSU) and Pat Porter (Texas A&M).
