Syngenta Seeds’ Agrisure Viptera trait stack in corn

Syngenta Seeds announced that its Agrisure Viptera trait will now be stacked with Agrisure 3000GT to form the new Agrisure Viptera 3111 trait stack. The new Viptera stack follows USDA’s recent deregulation of the Viptera trait.

The Viptera trait with its new mode of action called Vip3A adds to Agrisure’s broad spectrum of control by controlling pests like corn earworm, fall armyworm, western bean cutworm, black cutworm, dingy cutworm and stalk borer. According to Syngenta, research shows the Agrisure Viptera trait also can reduce the development of molds and mycotoxins.
Syngenta expects hybrids containing the Agrisure Viptera trait to be available for planting in the U.S. in 2011. For more information, visit
