The trait from Syngenta gives growers rotational option for corn rootworm management

The European Commission has granted Syngenta import approval for the Agrisure Duracade trait (event 5307).

The trait features a mode of action that controls corn rootworm differently than other traits on the market.

“This trait approval is an important milestone demonstrating our commitment to bring new, innovative technologies to help growers protect and maximize their yield,” said David Hollinrake, president of Syngenta Seeds. “The Agrisure Duracade trait gives a new trait rotational option for CRW management for a healthier corn crop and higher yield potential.”

The approval covers corn grain and its derived products for food and feed use within the countries of the European Union.

Agrisure Duracade hybrids are sold as stacked traits (Agrisure Duracade 5222 E-Z Refuge and Agrisure Duracade 5122 E-Z Refuge) and all of the individual components of these stacks are now approved.  For more information about Agrisure Duracade trait stacks, growers should ask their local seed provider or visit http://www.biotradestatus.com/.

Agrisure Duracade was approved by USDA to plant in the U.S. in 2013. Hybrids containing the Agrisure Duracade trait have been sold and planted in the U.S. since 2014, subject to grain marketing requirements.
