Dow Announces Launch of Enlist Corn in U.S. and Canada

first_img Dow Announces Launch of Enlist Corn in U.S. and Canada Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Dow Announces Launch of Enlist Corn in U.S. and Canada By Gary Truitt – Jun 14, 2017 The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW) will launch Enlist™ corn in the U.S and Canada for the 2018 growing season, enabling farmers to access the premier technology to maximize yield by controlling weeds. The Company announced the news today after the Ministry of Agriculture of the People’s Republic of China approved the import of grain produced from corn containing the Enlist trait.“Enlist is among the largest advanced technology opportunities in Dow’s history, and demonstrates how our innovation drives our growth,” says Andrew Liveris, chairman and chief executive officer, The Dow Chemical Company. “With today’s news, we continue to deliver on the promise of Enlist. This product will answer a significant, pressing and broad market need. Dow is proud to offer this superior solution to farmers across the U.S. and Canada.”Enlist corn is part of the suite of products in the Enlist system developed by Dow AgroSciences, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company. The technology is designed to manage resistant and hard-to-control weeds, a problem that has grown steadily worse since the first glyphosate-resistant weeds were discovered in 2001. Resistant and tough weeds now infest more than 100 million acres of American farmland alone.1  Enlist Duo®, the companion herbicide for use with Enlist corn, cotton and soybeans, is a highly differentiated and effective solution that has been optimized for on-target application using proprietary Colex-D® technology by Dow AgroSciences. Among other benefits, Colex-D technology minimizes the potential for physical drift and provides near-zero volatility.Enlist corn will be widely available in the U.S. and Canada, and will be sold as both SmartStax® Enlist and PowerCore® Enlist hybrids, creating the leading weed and insect control packages in the industry. The Enlist technology will also be licensed to other seed companies.“We are very excited to bring the Enlist system to farmers in the U.S. and Canada,” says Tim Hassinger, president and CEO, Dow AgroSciences. “The feedback on the performance during our Stewarded Introduction has been extremely positive, as growers have been very impressed with both the weed control as well as the formulation advancements we have made, reducing the potential for drift and volatility.”Commercialization of Enlist corn follows the successful launch of Enlist™ cotton in 2016. Dow AgroSciences is also ready for full commercialization of Enlist soybeans and Enlist E3™ soybeans, and is considering options for the 2018 season as it awaits final import approvals.“We appreciate the efforts of the U.S. and China governments under the 100 Day initiative,” says Hassinger. “We look forward to continuing to work with China and their regulatory process for additional trait approvals so we can bring farmers new and much needed technology.” Previous articlePurdue Farm Management Tour Preview on the HAT Wednesday Morning EditionNext articleIndiana Farm Bank Reports Good Earnings Gary Truittlast_img read more

HUD: March Housing Scorecard Shows Progress

first_img The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) latest Housing Scorecard for March, released in conjunction with the U.S. Treasury, showed progress in the housing market, but cautioned that the national economy is still healing from the Great Recession. In particular, the report commented that foreclosure starts continued to decrease while January home prices remained stable.”While there is good news in the March Scorecard, it’s clear the housing market is still in the recovery phase of the cycle,” said HUD Deputy assistant secretary for Economic Affairs, Kurt Usowski. “The good news is that homeowners’ equity is now over $10 trillion, foreclosure starts are at their lowest levels since 2005, and house prices remain stable, but the recovery is stronger in some markets than in others.”Citing data from RealtyTrac, HUD found newly initiated foreclosure starts were 51,842, down 9 percent from January and 27 percent from a year ago. Foreclosure starts are at their lowest levels since December, 2005.30,307 properties were repossessed (REO), which was virtually the same figure as January and down 33 percent from the previous year.The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) reported that the purchase-only house index rose 7.4 percent, up .5 percent seasonally-adjusted from December. The government report noted that home values are on par with prices in mid-2005.”Overall, with home sales slowing, too many homeowners still underwater, and mortgage delinquency rates remaining high compared to historic norms, we must sustain our efforts to encourage continuing recovery in the housing market and help responsible homeowners,” Usowski added.A bright spot in the report highlighted the Obama administration’s loss mitigation programs.Government programs have extended mortgage aid nearly 7.6 million times to homeowners through mortgage modifications and other forms of mortgage assistance arrangements between April 2009 and February 2014. The report found that mortgage aid has outpaced foreclosures.The Making Home Affordable Program has helped 2 million homeowners, while the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) has assisted 1.3 million homeowners.The scorecard noted that HOPE Now lenders had offered families and individuals more than 4 million property modifications through January.”The Administration’s Making Home Affordable program continues to provide assistance to struggling homeowners, with more than 1.3 million homeowners receiving permanent modifications through HAMP,” said Tim Bowler, Treasury Acting Assistant Secretary for Financial Stability. “In addition, the standards set through the program have helped change the industry and helped millions more avoid foreclosure.” Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago April 4, 2014 721 Views Sign up for DS News Daily Related Articles Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / HUD: March Housing Scorecard Shows Progress About Author: Colin Robins Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agocenter_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribe The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Previous: Fed Survey Finds Increased Interest in RMBS Next: DS News Webcast: Monday 4/7/2014 Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago HUD: March Housing Scorecard Shows Progress Tagged with: Foreclosures HAMP Home Prices Housing Scorecard HUD Making Home Affordable Program The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago  Print This Post Colin Robins is the online editor for DSNews.com.

Industry Lessons Learned From 2020’s Catastrophic Events

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Industry Lessons Learned From 2020’s Catastrophic Events Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Industry Lessons Learned From 2020’s Catastrophic Events About Author: Chuck Green  Print This Post The failure to take climate change seriously is akin to playing Russian roulette with the housing economy, according to experts. Consequently, it’s incumbent upon the insurance and mortgage industries to tap new technologies to ratchet up efficiency, while reducing risk and ensuring the protection of American homeownership and commercial assets. That’s the message from the CoreLogic 2020 Catastrophe Report.The report analyzes last year’s natural catastrophes through a host of perspectives, including climate change, the pandemic, and the overall threat to American homeownership.Insurers and mortgage lenders can better understand peril risk and damages down to a parcel level by using catastrophe risk science, weather verification tools, and digital workflows.In fact, last year marked the sixth straight year with over 10 weather events reaching losses catapulting $1 billion.A cocktail of peril risk scores from CoreLogic reflect 35 million homes—which approaches a third of the U.S> housing stock—are highly vulnerable stemming from natural hazards. The location of the homes at the highest risk: California, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, along the Mississippi River, and large Gulf and Atlantic coastal stretches.A new study authored by researchers at Stanford University has determined that increased precipitation created by increased global temperatures have contributed to one-third of the financial costs of flooding in the U.S. over the past three decades.The study, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, estimated that nearly $75 billion of the $199 billion in flood damages that occurred between 1988 and 2017 was the result of dramatic changes to the global climate. The Stanford researchers used climate and socioeconomic data for their study to determine if the increase in flooding was being driven primarily by climate change or by other ground-level factors including population growth, housing development, and increasing property values.“The fact that extreme precipitation has been increasing and will likely increase in the future is well known, but what effect that has had on financial damages has been uncertain,” said Frances Davenport, a PhD student in Earth system science at Stanford’s School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences and the lead author of the study. “Our analysis allows us to isolate how much of those changes in precipitation translate to changes in the cost of flooding, both now and in the future.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago January 28, 2021 891 Views Subscribe Related Articles Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Share Save Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Chuck Green has contributed to the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Chicago Tribune and others covering various industries, including real estate, business and banking, technology, and sports.
