Safeguard your corn

The Viptera™️ trait 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.

The Viptera trait 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 site traditionally targeted by crystal (cry) proteins, Viptera delivers a high dose kill, making it the most effective trait for control of western bean cutworm.
