Syngenta Receives EPA Approval for E-Z Refuge Trait Stacks

The Environmental Protection Agency has approved the Agrisure Duracade 5122 E-Z Refuge and Agrisure Duracade 5222 E-Z Refuge trait stacks. Syngenta says the single-bag refuge products will provide growers with unmatched corn rootworm protection plus a convenient five-percent integrated refuge. Jill Wheeler - Syngenta Product Lead for Commercial Traits says these products offer farmers a new control option so they can grow more corn in the wake of rising corn rootworm pressure and concerns about the continued efficacy of current rootworm technologies. Wheeler says the products promote technology preservation because they provide two modes of action against corn rootworm and integrated refuge for automatic compliance.

Because corn rootworm management is a complex issue and the solution is more than just traits - Syngenta has developed a set of corn rootworm management recommendations that balances insect resistance management and integrated pest management to help growers maximize crop productivity and yield.
