Sustainable food production means protecting the crop against harmful pests, while having minimal impact on beneficial insects. DuPont™ Coragen® comes from a new class of insecticides that can do both.

Coragen® has effective, multiple-stage control of earworm pests that infect sweet corn. This gives growers a new weapon against common pests such as European corn borer, Western bean cutworm and corn earworm. Its reduced-risk insecticide classification and minimal impact on beneficials are added benefits. Add to that its efficacy against even resistant biotypes, and it’s a winning combination.

Swede midge can have up to five overlapping generations in one season, making it very difficult to control. It takes an insecticide like DuPont™ Coragen® to adequately protect a crop against wave after wave of swede midge infestations.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) makes sense because it’s both efficient and sustainable. DuPont has created a product with traits that match IPM strategies. DuPont™ Coragen® provides highly effective insect control, but has minimal impact on beneficial species. And the product belongs to a new chemical class, so that resistant pests don’t stand a chance.

Food safety starts on the farm. Protect yourself and the public with a well-thought out system. Find a program that fits your operation, then master the paperwork to stay as a preferred supplier to major processors, grocery and restaurant chains.

Canadian producers use integrated pest management to control pests and maximize yields – both things that will be key to feeding a growing population.

With 24 different strains and more undoubtedly coming, it takes careful management to stay ahead of late blight. You can reduce late blight risk with a proactive approach and the right fungicide.

Rhizoctonia is a fungal pathogen found wherever potatoes are grown. Careful management and a new product will help growers manage this widespread and constant threat.

Under the right conditions, alternaria can pose a significant threat in many bulb, brassica, cucurbit and fruiting vegetables. DuPont™ Fontelis® Fungicide is a new and advanced solution for managing this challenging disease.

Resistance to Colorado potato beetle can appear first as reduced effectiveness of legacy insecticides. You can manage resistance by using insecticides from alternate groups, especially new ones like DuPont™ Coragen® which is a Group 28 insecticide.

New tools from DuPont solve major pest issues so Canadian producers can produce higher yields and better quality crops to feed a growing world population.

Western bean cutworm has become a significant pest in corn fields in Ontario. To protect your crop, scouting is crucial and be ready to spray DuPont™ Coragen® insecticide at egg hatch for best control.
