Syngenta Monday announced that regulatory authorities in Korea have granted import approval for the Agrisure 3122 trait stack for food or feed use. The Agrisure 3122 trait stack offers growers a reduced-refuge trait stack featuring dual modes of action against corn borer and corn rootworm.
"U.S. corn growers planting hybrids with Agrisure 3122 trait stack continue to gain access to additional export markets with Korean approval," said David Morgan, region director of Syngenta in North America and president of Syngenta Seeds, Inc.
The Agrisure 3122 trait stack includes the Agrisure CB trait for corn borer; the Agrisure RW trait for corn rootworm; the Herculex I trait, a second mode of action against corn borer; the Herculex RW trait, a second mode of action against corn rootworm; and the Agrisure GT trait for glyphosate tolerance.
The Agrisure 3122 trait stack is designed for geographies where corn rootworm management is a significant concern for growers. This product is marketed as the Agrisure 3122 E-Z Refuge trait stack as it includes a 5% integrated, single-bag refuge for certain corn-growing regions.
In the United States, the Agrisure 3122 trait stack already received registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Syngenta has received import approval from regulatory authorities in Canada, Japan, Mexico, Korea, the Philippines and Taiwan.
