Corn Technology

PowerCore® trait technology delivers superior control of above-ground insects in corn.

The Agrisure® GT trait provides tolerance to in-crop applications of glyphosate- based herbicides. This hybrid is an excellent option for refuge acres in a structured refuge operation.

The Agrisure Artesian® GTA trait stack combines a hybrid that optimizes the conversion of water to grain and provides improved yield consistency with tolerance to in-crop applications of glyphosate-based herbicides.

The Agrisure® 3010 trait stack provides season-long control of corn borer, as well as herbicide flexibility with both glyphosate and glufosinate tolerance.

The Agrisure® 3122 E-Z Refuge® trait stack offers the convenience of an E-Z Refuge® seed blend featuring two modes of action against corn borer and corn rootworm, as well as suppression of ear-feeding insects. The Agrisure 3122 E-Z Refuge trait stack is a good addition to a multi-year corn rootworm management plan.

The Agrisure Viptera® 3220 E-Z Refuge® trait stack offers the most comprehensive above-ground insect control with multiple modes of action against key above-ground insects and the convenience of an integrated E-Z Refuge® seed blend. It is ideal for areas where corn rootworm management is not a primary concern.

The Agrisure Viptera® 3110A trait stack combines the benefits of a hybrid that maximizes yield when it rains and increases yield when it doesn’t, with season-long comprehensive above-ground insect control. It is ideal for areas where corn rootworm management is not a key focus.

The Agrisure Duracade® 5222 E-Z Refuge® trait stack is the ultimate trait stack for insect control, simplicity and choice, featuring multiple modes of action to control 16 key insects— more than any competitive trait stack —including a unique mode of action that demonstrates strong performance against corn rootworm, season-long water optimization and the convenience of an integrated E-Z Refuge seed blend.

The Agrisure Viptera® 3110 trait stack offers season-long comprehensive above- ground insect control. It is ideal for areas where corn rootworm management is not a key focus.

The most comprehensive above-ground insect control, featuring three modes of action on key lepidopteran pests, and the convenience of an integrated E-Z Refuge® seed blend.

The Agrisure Duracade® 5122 E-Z Refuge® trait stack offers season-long control of corn rootworm and corn borer, as well as suppression of ear-feeding insects, and includes a unique mode of action that demonstrates strong performance against corn rootworm, with an integrated E-Z Refuge seed blend.

VT Double PRO® RIB Complete® Corn Blend is a mix of 95% traited and 5% refuge seed. With refuge-in-a-bag, there’s no need to calculate or plant separate, structured refuge in the Corn-Growing Area. It contains dual modes of action for maximum protection against corn earworm and other above-ground pests, like European and Southwestern corn borers and fall armyworm.

Roundup Ready® Corn 2 contains in-plant tolerance to Roundup® brand herbicides, enabling growers to spray Roundup® brands over the top, from planting through the V8 stage or 30-inch corn height, with excellent crop safety and no yield reduction. Compared to popular conventional corn programs, the Roundup Ready® Corn 2 system costs less, while allowing hybrids to reach their maximum yield potential.

SmartStax® RIB Complete® Corn Blend is a mix of 95% Bt. traited, 5% refuge seed. You get all the benefits of SmartStax® technology, plus the convenience of 5% refuge seed interspersed in every bag. It has proven to have a 10 bu/A advantage over non-Bt. traited corn and a 20 bu/A advantage over non-Bt. treated corn + a soil-applied insecticide.

*In moderate to high rootworm pressure situations, SmartStax® RIB Complete® corn blend products provided an average 20 bu/acre advantage over products without Bt corn rootworm protection and an average 10 bu/acre advantage over products without Bt corn rootworm protection used in combination with a soil-applied insecticide. TD Sites in IL, IA, KS, CO, NE, WI, MI, IN, MN, SD, OH, DE (2010-2013)100-112RM; N = 46 protocol site years under moderate and high CRW pressure. Moderate Pressure = untreated check averaged > 0.5-1.0. High Pressure = locations where untreated check averaged > 1.0.

DroughtGard® Hybrids with VT Double PRO® RIB Complete® Corn Blend contain the first double-stacked trait with dual modes of action for above ground insects and maximum protection against corn earworm. Superior genetics along with innovative drought-tolerant trait technology helps DroughtGard® Hybrids withstand drought conditions for a better chance of maximizing kernels per ear and overall yield potential.

Trecepta® technology contains Cry1A.105, Cry2Ab2 and Vip3Aa20 from B.t. that together controls European corn borer, southwestern corn borer, southern cornstalk borer, corn earworm, fall armyworm, stalk borer, sugarcane borer, beet armyworm, true armyworm, black cutworm, western bean cutworm, lesser cornstalk borer and dingy cutworm. Products containing this technology also contain Roundup Ready® 2 Technology that provides tolerance to in-crop applications of labeled glyphosate herbicides when applied according to label directions.
