Syngenta announced that the National Biosafety Committee (CTNBio) in Brazil has approved its triple corn stack Bt11 x MIR162 x GA21 for cultivation in the country. The triple stack will be available to Brazilian growers for the 2011/2012 season.

“We are very pleased to receive this first approval for any triple stack product in Brazil. It demonstrates our ability to bring innovative technology to market,” said Davor Pisk, Chief Operating Officer Seeds. “The approval reinforces our portfolio for Brazilian growers and brings greater convenience and increased productivity.”

The triple corn stack Bt11 x MIR162 x GA21 combines herbicide tolerance and insect resistance. The MIR162 trait (Agrisure Viptera) offers outstanding control of fall army worm, the main insect threat to corn in Brazil, and of other damaging lepidopteran pests.
