Syngenta Seeds Expands Corn Portfolio

Syngenta Seeds, Inc. has introduced 140 new corn hybrids, including 41 featuring the Agrisure Viptera 3111 trait stack, which provides breakthrough control of the broadest spectrum of insects available. These new hybrids will be sold by Garst, Golden Harvest, and NK Seeds. The new hybrids, available for planting in 2011, offer growers additional choices to maximize yield performance under various growing conditions and soil types.

“Syngenta is offering growers a more complete lineup of outstanding corn hybrids for 2011, built on the top-line genetics, cutting-edge technology and proven performance of our three seed brands,” says Eric Boersma, Corn Portfolio Manager. “With the breadth of our expanded corn portfolio, growers will be able to find the hybrids they’re seeking to thrive in their fields and maximize yields.”

The Agrisure Viptera 3111 trait stack combines the Agrisure Viptera trait with the Agrisure 3000GT triple stack. The Agrisure Viptera 3111 trait stack not only controls 14 pests but also improves grain quality. Corn earworm, which historically has had no viable control solution, is highly susceptible to the Agrisure Viptera trait.

Other trait versions within the new product line-ups include the Agrisure 3000GT triple stack, the Agrisure GT/CB/LL trait stack, and the Agrisure GT trait. These expanded line-ups are designed to provide growers with high-yielding, genetically diverse hybrids with dependable agronomics.
