US EPA has approved Syngenta’s Agrisure Viptera 3110 trait stack for control of true armyworm – an industry first.

A salute to its name, true armyworm strikes in large numbers, devouring as many as 10 to 20 acres per day and sometimes eating corn plants down to the ground. Cool, wet springs typically usher in these sudden outbreaks.

“True armyworm outbreaks typically offer a very small window to react,” said Miloud Araba, technical traits lead for Syngenta. “With true armyworm control built into the Agrisure Viptera 3110 trait stack, growers can avoid being blindsided by an infestation.”

In addition to true armyworm, the Agrisure Viptera 3110 trait stack delivers broad-spectrum control of above-ground lepidopteran insects and can be part of an effective insect management strategy for growers who do not need to manage for corn rootworm.

In addition to above-ground, ear-feeding insect control, the Agrisure Viptera 3110 trait stack can preserve grain quality by protecting against mycotoxins, including aflatoxin, estimated to cause crop losses of $932 million annually in the United States alone.

The Agrisure Viptera 3110 trait stack is available in hybrids with both glyphosate and glufosinate tolerance.

Syngenta hybrids with the Agrisure Viptera 3110 trait stack are available for the 2014 planting season from the Syngenta seed brands Golden Harvest and NK and through licensing agreements with other seed companies.
