Agrisure Heads Syngenta Seed Lineup

Syngenta Seeds is expanding its Agrisure corn hybrids line-up for 2009 with 91 new corn hybrids, including many with a key triple stack.


The list of new Syngenta Seeds corn hybrids includes 44 featuring the Agrisure 3000GT triple stack, the first triple stack with no history of yield drag. The 91 new corn hybrids include 34 new Garst hybrids, 26 new Golden Harvest hybrids, and 31 hybrids for NK.

Hybrids with the Agrisure 3000GT trait stack help growers launch maximum yield performance while providing the flexibility to choose management practices that fit their needs. Agrisure 3000GT hybrids deliver exceptional protection against corn borer and corn rootworms, plus tolerance to in-season applications of either glyphosate herbicides such as Touchdown herbicide brands, or glufosinate herbicides such as Liberty or Ignite brands.

In addition, Agrisure 3000GT hybrids tap an advanced technology integration process to combine high-performance traits with elite genetics without yield drag. In fact, version testing showed that adding the Agrisure GT trait to Agrisure CB/LL/RW (corn borer/Liberty herbicide tolerance/corn rootworm) hybrids resulted in a 1.9 bushel per acre positive yield trend.
