Syngenta rolls out new corn hybrids
Syngenta Seeds, Inc. has introduced 140 new corn hybrids, including 41 featuring the Agrisure Viptera 3111 trait stack, company officials say.
These new hybrids will be sold by Garst, Golden Harvest and NK Seeds. The new hybrids, available for planting in 2011, offer growers additional choices to maximize yield performance under various growing conditions and soil types.
“Syngenta is offering growers a more complete lineup of outstanding corn hybrids for 2011, built on the top-line genetics, cutting-edge technology and proven performance of our three seed brands,” says Eric Boersma, Corn Portfolio Manager in a university report. “With the breadth of our expanded corn portfolio, growers will be able to find the hybrids they’re seeking to thrive in their fields and maximize yields.”
Syngenta is especially excited to introduce 41 hybrids available with the Agrisure Viptera 3111 trait stack. The Agrisure Viptera 3111 trait stack combines the Agrisure Viptera trait with the Agrisure 3000GT triple stack. This breakthrough corn trait package controls more pests than any other trait combination on the market. The Agrisure Viptera 3111 trait stack not only controls 14 pests but also improves grain quality. Corn earworm, which historically has had no viable control solution, is highly susceptible to the Agrisure Viptera trait.
Other trait versions within the new product line-ups include the Agrisure 3000GT triple stack, the Agrisure GT/CB/LL trait stack and the Agrisure GT trait, Syngenta leaders say.
