- Aphix™ SCA Tolerance, the best-in-class option for combating pressure from sugarcane aphids
- BMR-6 for increased palatability and digestibility, supporting more weight gain and milk production
- Brachytic Dwarf for superior standability and high leaf-to-stalk ratios
- Photoperiod Sensitivity (PS), for a wide harvest window
- Dry Stalk for reduced moisture levels, for earlier baling and storage
