Agrisure Viptera traits offered growers effective control of above-ground pests, says Syngenta. In 2016 the products protected better against western bean cutworm and corn earworm in side by side, competitive tests.
“Growers face tough decisions when selecting hybrids and trait technologies,” said Iris Tzafrir, commercial traits product lead, Syngenta. “Growers concerned about input costs may consider hybrids with little to no insect control, but they are taking a big gamble on the success of their crop. Choosing hybrids with insect control traits, such as Agrisure Viptera, can help defend a valuable seed investment against unpredictable pest pressure throughout the growing season.”
