Refuge Planting Configuration Options

Not all fields are alike, so there are various refuge configurations you can follow. Whichever you choose, it is important to ensure that your refuge is planted at the same time as your Bt fields and that you select refuge hybrids that are similar in maturity (within 100-150 CHU), disease resistance, herbicide tolerance, standability and other traits as your Bt hybrids. This will work to your advantage during weed control and at harvest time, as well as ensure that the moths are attracted equally to both your non-Bt and Bt fields.
