Stand up to corn rootworm
Corn rootworm (CRW) can eat into your profits. As the most destructive corn pest in the United States, CRW costs more than $1 billion annually in reduced grain yield and control measures. Fluctuating insect pressures and farming practices complicate control of the difficult-to-manage pest, making it important to be prepared at the start of each season. Once CRW feeding has occurred, plants are left vulnerable to disease, further damaging the crop, and leaving growers with fields that are tough to harvest, with low yields and reduced profits.
Agrisure Duracade trait stacks express a unique protein that binds differently in the gut of the CRW, providing effective control of western, northern and Mexican CRW. A USDA study showed the lowest level of adult corn rootworm beetle emergence in Agrisure Duracade fields compared to any other current corn rootworm trait on the market.
Agrisure Duracade trait stacks help hybrids develop a stronger, more robust root system that supplies optimal water and nutrient uptake. Stronger roots mean healthier plants that stand tall.
