Agrisure VipteraAgrisure Viptera

Safeguard your corn

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.
