INFORMATION & IDEAS
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.
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.
