See the Difference

A 2021 field study on the effects of corn rootworm showed that hybrids with the Duracade trait are effective in limiting the impact of CRW. Under heavy corn rootworm pressure, the average root injury score of the untreated check was 1.5 nodes damaged. Using that same scale, plants with the Duracade trait had just 0.35 nodes damaged.1
