Phoenix brand unveiled by Syngenta, Beck’s, for 2012
Syngenta today announced the launch of Phoenix, a new seed brand that expands grower access to Syngenta germplasm and Agrisure traits. The Phoenix brand offers growers the opportunity to purchase hybrids containing genetics and trait technology that includes Agrisure 3000GT and Agrisure Viptera 3111 trait stacks. Phoenix corn hybrids will be available regionally beginning with the 2012 planting season and will be distributed by Beck’s Superior Hybrids, Inc. (Beck’s).
“The Phoenix brand allows us to increase access to Syngenta corn germplasm and traits, particularly in the Eastern Corn Belt, with our Beck’s distribution agreement,” said David Morgan, Syngenta region director of North America and president of Syngenta Seeds, Inc., in a news release.
In 2010, working with Syngenta, Beck’s began production of the Agrisure Viptera 3111 trait stack.
“Our distribution agreement with Syngenta means that our customers now have an expanded line of top-performing options when choosing corn genetics and traits,” said Sonny Beck, Beck’s Superior Hybrids, Inc. president, in a news release.
