Syngenta’s DuracadeViptera Is Most Comprehensive Solution for Pest Control

Tim O'Brien, SyngentaSyngenta Corn Traits has simplified its corn trait product names and is now using trait brand names already known and trusted in the marketplace. Syngenta’s DuracadeVipteraTM is the industry’s most comprehensive solution for pest control, simplicity and choice–controlling 16 yield damaging above- and below-ground pests, more than any other competitive trait stack on the market.

“DuracadeViptera is our lead stack in our portfolio,” said Tim O’Brien, Traits Product Manager with Syngenta. “It offers protection for 16 above and below ground insects. That’s the most in the industry for a trait stack, so we’re very proud of that stack and excited to offer it to growers.”

O’Brien used Western Bean Cutworm as an example of an insect that is causing much more widespread pressure across the Corn Belt in recent years. While it’s fairly difficult to scout for and time the treatments properly, having a technology like Viptera available helps growers minimize scouting and spraying for that pest.
