Corn rootworm control

Corn producers will have another option next year for fighting corn rootworm. Novartis Seeds and Zeneca Ag Products teamed up to develop a new technology that delivers rootworm control as a seed treatment. Novartis developed the ProShield technology, its patented seed treatment, to deliver Zeneca's Force ST insecticide. The treatment will be available on selected NK brand hybrids.
