Agrisure DuracadeAgrisure Duracade

Delivering unmatched corn rootworm control

The Agrisure Duracade® trait features a unique mode of action to help control corn rootworm differently than other traits on the market, making it an important tool in integrated corn rootworm management. Effective control of corn rootworm helps to allow the crop to reach its genetic yield potential and increase profit potential.

The Agrisure Duracade trait will always be stacked with a second, proven mode of action for corn rootworm control and will be available in combination with herbicide tolerance technologies, Agrisure Artesian® water optimization technology, and other insect control traits like Agrisure Viptera® to manage a broad spectrum of pests.*

Agrisure Duracade will only be available as an integrated refuge product for increased grower convenience in corn rootworm management.

Agrisure Duracade expresses a protein with a unique binding site in the gut of the corn rootworm, helping hybrids develop a stronger, more robust root system that supplies your plants with optimal water and nutrient uptake. Stronger roots lead to healthier plants that stand all season long, helping to realize the crop’s genetic yield potential and increase profit potential.
