Attribute II Varieties

The Attribute® II trait stack combines the power of Vip3A – a unique mode of action proprietary to Syngenta – with Cry1Ab, the protein found in the Attribute trait stack, to offer enhanced protection of key pests and control of Western bean cutworm. In addition to high-level insect protection, Attribute sweet corn varieties offer beneficial herbicide tolerance for flexibility in weed management and give growers another option for harvesting outstanding yields of high-quality sweet corn that meet market needs.

Attribute Varieties

Each Attribute sweet corn variety contains a gene that expresses the production of a crystalline protein (Cry) from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). When lepidopteran insects consume a small amount of plant tissue, the Bt protein binds to their digestive systems, causing them to stop feeding and die within 48 hours. Bt protein is embedded within corn leaves, silks, stalks and ears throughout the growing season, providing comprehensive protection that won’t wash off in the rain or degrade in the sun.
