Agrisure_3122E-ZRefuge_CMYKSyngenta announced that regulatory authorities in Korea have granted import approval for the Agrisure 3122 trait stack for food or feed use. The Agrisure 3122 trait stack offers growers a reduced-refuge trait stack featuring dual modes of action against corn borer and corn rootworm.

The Agrisure 3122 trait stack includes the trusted Agrisure CB trait, which has been helping to protect corn from European corn borer for more than 10 years; the Agrisure RW trait, which protects against corn rootworm; the Herculex I trait which provides a second mode of action against corn borer; the Herculex RW trait, which provides a second mode of action against corn rootworm; and the Agrisure GT trait for glyphosate tolerance.

The Agrisure 3122 trait stack is designed for geographies where corn rootworm management is a significant concern for growers. This product is marketed as the Agrisure 3122 E-Z Refuge trait stack as it includes the added benefit of a 5 percent integrated, single-bag refuge for certain corn-growing regions. Hybrids with the Agrisure 3122 E-Z refuge trait stack will be available from the Syngenta seed brands Golden Harvest® and NK, and also through licensing agreements with other seed companies.
