Above-ground Control

Less damage from ear-, stalk and leaf-feeding insects results in:
  • Better crop stand
  • Higher grain quality due to lower incidences of mold and mycotoxin development
  • Increased yield and profit potential

Below-ground Control

Stronger, more robust root systems lead to:
  • Healthier plants
  • Fuller leaves that allow for increased photosynthesis and maximum grain fill
  • More robust stalks that stand tall

Agrisure Trait Stacks Deliver More Control on More Insect Pests
