Syngenta corn borer control product cleared by EPA

Published:

Syngenta customers could enjoy a pest-free planting season next spring, thanks to EPA registration approval of a new insect-control product. Agrisure 3120 E-Z Refuge, a new trait stack from Syngenta, offers above-ground insect control, featuring two modes of action against corn borer and control of ear-feeding insects, with the convenience of an integrated refuge product.

“Syngenta developed Agrisure 3120 E-Z Refuge as a part of our ongoing commitment to providing growers with more options to meet the need for above-ground control,” said Iris Tzafrir, commercial traits product lead with Syngenta, in a recent release. “This new trait stack is a great solution for growers interested in controlling above-ground insect pressure from pests like European corn borer and western bean cutworm, both of which have been prevalent this season.”

Agrisure 3120 E-Z Refuge will be available for 2017 planting from Syngenta seed brands Golden Harvest and NK Corn and through licensing agreements with other seed companies. Additionally, growers will have access to the insect control benefits of Agrisure 3120 E-Z Refuge in combination with Agrisure Artesian technology for water optimization designated as Agrisure 3120A E-Z Refuge.
