> The Agrisure Duracade¬? trait (event 5307) offers a healthier corn crop and higher yield potential through a new trait rotational option for CRW management. Syngenta says that the trait is different from the other traits available in the market. It has a unique mode of action to control CRW by expressing a protein that binds differently in the CRW's gut and is stacked with a proven mode of action against the pest. This results in a 4.1 bushel-per-acre advantage over their products that did not have the trait.
> Using the seeds with Agrisure Duracade¬? trait has following benefits: (1) having less damage from insects that feed on the corn's ear, stalks and leaves, (2) a better crop stand, and (3) having a more robust corn root system underground.
> The said approval from the European Commission covers all corn grain and corn-derived products for food and feed use in the EU's member countries. This allows European cornfarmers better access to the trait, thus helping them protect and maximize their annual yield.
