Agrisure Viptera® is the first vegetative insecticidal protein in corn and is the only trait currently available that effectively controls western bean cutworm. It also protects the crop from key above-ground insects like corn earworm, cutworm and armyworm.
Agrisure Viptera relies on a unique vegetative insecticidal protein (VIP) that binds to a receptor site in the lining of the western bean cutworm’s mid-gut. Because VIP targets this site, rather than the sites traditionally targeted by crystal (cry) proteins, Agrisure Viptera delivers a high dose kill, making it the most effective trait for control of western bean cutworm.
Agrisure Viptera delivers the most comprehensive western bean cutworm control in the industry. Western bean cutworm is native to North America and has progressively spread through the Corn Belt. Masses of up to 200 eggs are laid on the plant leaves, so populations can grow quickly.
