(The Agrisure Viptera Trait + Agrisure 3000GT)
The Agrisure Viptera 3111 trait stack controls more insects than any other product on the market. It features demonstrated, unsurpassed multi-pest control of 14 yield- and quality-robbing insects including corn borer, corn rootworm and the multi-pest complex, a collection of insects that cost American corn growers more than $1.1 billion annually in lost yield and grain quality*. The Agrisure Viptera 3111 trait stack offers the broadest available spectrum of above- and below-ground insect control. This stack also offers the same herbicide flexibility as the Agrisure 3000GT triple stack, with a choice of either glyphosate or glufosinate applications.
The Agrisure Viptera trait is the newest addition to Syngenta’s Agrisure system of high-performance traits. Agrisure Viptera trait technology features Vip3A, a new mode of action that has demonstrated breakthrough control of the multi-pest complex.
In Syngenta trials, hybrids with the Agrisure Viptera 3111 trait stack provided an average yield advantage of 14.3 bu/A vs. traditional triple stack hybrids under significant corn earworm pressure. In areas of extremely heavy corn earworm pressure, the yield advantage increased to up to 32 bu/A**.
Products containing the Agrisure Viptera trait will not be available for sale prior to Syngenta obtaining all necessary import approvals.

**All Syngenta strip trial comparisons are completed with hybrids of similar RMs, adjusted for moisture to +/- 3 points and of equivalent trait classes unless otherwise noted. Isolines used for comparison featured identical genetics to the test hybrids but did not contain the Agrisure Viptera trait.
