Syngenta Corn Traits Helping Growers Control Pests

Chuck Zimmerman

Drew Showalter, SyngentaA new naming system for Syngenta corn traits will help growers better understand the benefits available in 2023.

“At Syngenta, we view ourselves as an industry leader in corn trait technology, continually researching and developing new technology to help growers protect yield. We’re constantly innovating,” said Drew Showalter, Corn Portfolio Lead with Syngenta Seeds.

The new system focuses on two familiar Syngenta brands – Duracade for rootworm control and Viptera for above ground protection. Showalter said combining the two offers the most comprehensive insect control trait stack in the industry.

Other developments from Syngenta will include opening a brand new innovation center in Malta, Illinois, in 2023. That facility will complement the Syngenta Biotech Institute in Raleigh, North Carolina, which is the company’s innovation center for corn traits.
