New Syngenta Corn Hybrids for 2017

Tapping into its global pool of genetics, Syngenta unveils new high-performing corn hybrids for the 2017 growing season.

The early morning sunshine brightens a field of cotton in Greenville, North Carolina.
Syngenta has a strong portfolio of Golden Harvest, NK and Enogen hybrids available for 2017.
Syngenta will offer 69 new corn hybrids, including Golden Harvest®, NK® and Enogen® corn, for the 2017 growing season. Each hybrid is a product of the Y.E.S. Yield Engineering System™, which enables Syngenta scientists to tap into a global pool of genetics to create hybrids that match U.S. growers’ individual field needs.

The new hybrid class features high-performing Agrisure® traits including:

  • 46 hybrids available as single-bag E-Z Refuge® options, providing an added level of grower convenience
  • 14 Agrisure Artesian® hybrids, helping growers maximize yield when it rains and increase yield when it doesn’t
  • 18 hybrids with the Agrisure Viptera® trait, offering comprehensive, above-ground insect control that results in more high-quality grain
  • 16 hybrids with the Agrisure Duracade® trait, featuring a unique mode of action to control corn rootworm

Syngenta also will offer three new Enogen hybrids. Enogen corn enzyme technology, an in-seed innovation exclusively from Syngenta, is the industry’s first and only biotech corn designed specifically to enhance ethanol production.
