Hybrids within the orange lines are the new CR+ hybrids. Those shown on the left side of the plant have the traditional Cercospora source for disease tolerance.

Using the CR+™ trait means no yield drag in non-disease conditions.

The chart demonstrates the new CR+ trait as having higher protection and performance when compared with current Cercospora sources.
