EPA Approves Syngenta’s New Agrisure Trait Stack


Agrisure 3120 E-Z Refuge, a new trait stack from Syngenta, has received registration approval from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Agrisure 3120 E-Z Refuge offers above-ground insect control, featuring two modes of action against corn borer and control of ear-feeding insects, with the convenience of an integrated refuge product.

“Syngenta developed Agrisure 3120 E-Z Refuge as a part of our ongoing commitment to providing growers with more options to meet the need for above-ground control,” said Iris Tzafrir, commercial traits product lead with Syngenta. “This new trait stack is a great solution for growers interested in controlling above-ground insect pressure from pests like European corn borer and western bean cutworm, both of which have been prevalent this season.”

Agrisure 3120 E-Z Refuge will be available for 2017 planting from Syngenta seed brands Golden Harvest and NK Corn and through licensing agreements with other seed companies. Additionally, growers will have access to the insect control benefits of Agrisure 3120 E-Z Refuge in combination with Agrisure Artesian technology for water optimization designated as Agrisure 3120A E-Z Refuge.

Hybrids containing Agrisure 3120 E-Z Refuge or Agrisure 3120A E-Z Refuge will be available for sale immediately in states were all regulatory approvals have been granted. In states where additional approvals are required, sales will not begin until receipt of such approvals.
