On Tuesday, May 7 Gary and Ryan met with representatives from Syngenta to receive an update on their Enogen corn stewardship plans.
Syngenta is currently expanding sales of Enogen as a feed corn among 3,000 growers, with concentrations in Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, Michigan, New England and Wisconsin. Syngenta anticipates that, in 2019/2020, two-thirds of Enogen corn will go to feed, while the remaining third will go to fuel usage. As parts of its commercialization, Syngenta is conducting stewardship trainings with its growers and rolling out IP360.com, a password protected mapping software containing information on Enogen corn locations based on contracts between Syngenta and growers. A high resolution, password protected site will be available to consumers and handlers and a lower resolution site will be available to the general public.
