The Industry’s Most Effective Above-Ground Insect Control

See cleaner ears, improved grain quality and higher yield potential with Viptera® trait technology. The industry’s leading above-ground protection controls ear-, stalk- and leaf-feeding insects, so every seed has the chance to thrive.

  • Take Control of Above-Ground Insects
    Viptera provides excellent control of corn earworm and is the only trait technology on the market for effective western bean cutworm control.
  • Take Control of Quality
    Ear-feeding insects lower grain quality, reduce yield, and create kernel entry points for molds that produce mycotoxins like aflatoxin, vomitoxin, and fumonisins. Count on Viptera for improved quality.
  • Take Control of Yield Potential
    Viptera provides above-ground protection for a 7.3 bu/A advantage.*
