DuPont Pioneer launches inoculant and feed technology offerings for 2016



DuPont Pioneer announced the launch of the Pioneer® brand Nutrivail™ feed technology and Rapid React™ aerobic stability technology.


These two brands represent a breakthrough in managing forages and advance Integrated Feed Solutions from Pioneer.


"Nutrivail™ feed technology is a revolutionary product line that will help improve nutrient availability for cattle," said Kyle Whitaker, DuPont Pioneer's senior marketing manager for forages. "And Rapid React™ aerobic stability technology provides stable feed in just seven days. Both will help producers to maximise the value of their forages."


Improving nutrient availability


Nutrivail™ helps to improve fiber digestibility, thus reducing the need for supplemental energy sources in rations. They are applied to corn silage, haylage or grass silage at harvest.


"Nutrivail™ increases the availability of nutrients, giving cows more energy and value from every mouthful of feed," Whitaker explained. "These products take us beyond the traditional silage management approach to truly enhance feed quality and maximise the value of homegrown feed."


Accessing silage faster


Pioneer® inoculants with Rapid React™ aerobic stability technology contains a next-generation L. buchneri strain that helps to create stable feed in just seven days and allows producers to access their most valuable feed asset one week after harvest.


Rapid React™ will be available in improved versions of Pioneer® inoculants 11C33, 11G22 and 11B91. It boosts fermentation efficiency, minimises dry matter losses, reduces spoilage and produces consistently palatable feed.


"Rapid React™ helps producers to significantly change their feedout practices. Now, they will be able to feed new corn silage just seven days after harvest, instead of waiting 60 to 90 days," said Whitaker. "This helps with potential inventory issues and may mean they can keep less silage on hand during the overlap period."


Pioneer's Integrated Feed Solutions brings top-quality products together with forage and agronomic expertise and management services to provide producers with tools to improve whole-farm performance and profitability.


High-yielding seed genetics are complemented by revolutionary new silage inoculant and feed technologies. Pioneer solutions come with built-in support from forage and livestock specialists, providing unique, on-farm services that bridge the gap from agronomy to nutrition.


"Nutrivail and Rapid React™ represent the very best of our commitment to Integrated Feed Solutions for dairy and beef producers," Whitaker said.
