CORN

The Agrisure® traits portfolio offers best-in-class insect control, water optimization and herbicide tolerance to provide convenient, consistent solutions tailored for each growing environment.

Agrisure Artesian® corn hybrids maximize yield when it rains and increase yield when it doesn’t. Built for top-end yield using scientifically selected genes, this elite class of high-performing hybrids can respond to water stress with multiple modes of action and at virtually any stage of growth—managing gaps in rainfall throughout the season. Artesian® corn hybrids can help manage the unpredictability of weather and improve yield consistency by converting water to grain more effectively than other hybrids. The Agrisure Duracade® 5122A E-Z Refuge® trait stack combines a hybrid that optimizes the conversion of water to grain, with two modes of action for control of corn rootworm and corn borer, ear-feeding insect control and an integrated refuge. The Agrisure Artesian® 3122A E-Z Refuge® trait stack pairs a hybrid that converts water to grain more effectively than other hybrids and provides improved yield consistency, with the convenience of an integrated refuge featuring above- and below-ground insect control. The Agrisure Artesian® 3011A trait stack combines a hybrid that converts water to grain more effectively than other hybrids and provides improved yield consistency, with traits that control corn borer and corn rootworm, and offer herbicide flexibility.

The Agrisure Viptera® 3220 E-Z Refuge® trait stack offers corn growers dual modes of action against ear-feeding insects, including corn borer, for more, higher-quality grain with an integrated refuge. It is ideal for areas where rootworm management is not a key focus. Agrisure Viptera® 3111 trait stack controls above- and belowground insects for higher quality grain and increased yield potential. Agrisure® 3000GT trait stack offers control of corn borer and corn rootworm with tolerance to both glyphosate and glufosinate herbicides. The Agrisure® GT trait provides excellent tolerance to in-crop applications of glyphosate-based herbicides. This hybrid is an excellent option for refuge acres in a structured refuge operation.

Agrisure Artesian® GTA trait stack combines a hybrid that optimizes the conversion of water to grain and provides improved yield consistency with tolerance to in-crop applications of glyphosate-based herbicides.

Important: Always read and follow label instructions. Some crop protection products may not be registered for sale or use in all states or counties. Please check with your local extension service to ensure registration status. Caution: Do not spray E-Z Refuge products with glufosinate ammonium based herbicides, including Liberty® brand herbicide.

Before opening a bag of seed, be sure to read and understand the stewardship requirements, including applicable refuge requirements for insect resistance management, for the biotechnology traits expressed in the seed set forth in the technology agreement that you sign. By opening and using a bag of seed, you are reaffirming your obligation to comply with those stewardship requirements. Seed products with the LibertyLink® (LL) trait are resistant to the herbicide glufosinate ammonium, an alternative to glyphosate in corn, and combine highyielding genetics with the powerful, non-selective, postemergent weed control of Liberty® herbicide for optimum yield and excellent weed control.

NOTE: DISEASE & INSECT RATINGS Ratings are not absolute; environmental conditions and certain cultural practices, such as continuous corn, play a critical role in disease development and insect infestation, which can, in turn, predispose plants to secondary disease such as stalk and ear rots. If conditions are severe, even hybrids rated as resistant can be adversely affected. Growers should balance yield potential, hybrid maturity and cultural practices against the anticipated risk of disease or insect pressure.
