Syngenta debuts Viptera 3111 maize in US
Syngenta Seeds has introduced 41 new genetically modified US maize hybrids incorporating its Viptera 3111 trait stack. Viptera 3111 combines the company’s insect-resistant Agrisure Viptera (MIR162) with insect-resistant and herbicide-tolerant Agrisure 3000GT. The trait stack controls 14 pests, which is more than any other combination on the market, Syngenta points out. Japanese approval for Viptera 3111 in June cleared the way for a US launch ( Agrow No 594, p 27).
