Essential for Corn Rootworm
A Different Kind of CRW Control
• Unique mode of action that controls corn rootworm differently than other traits
• Effective control of Western, Northern, and Mexican corn rootworm
• Helps corn hybrids to reach full genetic yield potential for increased yield potential and profit potential
• In a USDA study, CRW beetle emergence was reduced by 99.79 percent -- the highest reported reduction of any corn rootworm trait*

The picture is clear:
• Fuller leaves allow for increased photosynthesis and maximum grain fill
• Thicker stalks stand tall in adverse conditions, all season long
• Stronger, more robust root systems enable optimal water and nutrient uptake

Corn Rootworm Management
1 MB PDF
An important tool in a grower's CRW management toolbox, Agrisure Duracade complements and enhances the multiple technologies farmers use to control corn rootworm and grow more corn.
Successful corn rootworm management strategies requires a multi-year, whole-farm approach that integrates various and different control measures. Agrisure Duracade fits this model and comes stacked with a second, proven mode of action for dual modes of action against CRW in one convenient trait stack.
Agrisure Duracade Grower Testimonial
“Corn rootworm has kind of creeped up on us. There are some producers that really have a problem, and I think Agrisure Duracade will be very beneficial for them. In our fields, I think the standability of the Agrisure Duracade hybrids has been very good. I've seen no problems with it at all."
Richardson County, Neb.
“The impact corn rootworm damage has had on the bottom line has been pretty substantial in corn-on-corn situations; I’d say it’s cost us somewhere around 20 bushels an acre. The Agrisure Duracade corn roots that we dug, I was unable to find any corn rootworm feeding outside of a couple of plants on the outside edge of the field – in the field as a whole we didn’t see any rootworm damage in the Agrisure Duracade corn. Agrisure Duracade has been a very good product and I’ll continue to use it."
A Convenient Fit On Any Farm
Agrisure Duracade is sold as an integrated refuge product, E-Z Refuge®, which offers growers the convenience of not having to manage separate refuge acres. It also is available in combination with other insect control and herbicide-tolerant trait technologies to manage a broad spectrum of pests.
Agrisure Duracade trait stacks are available in the latest, highest-yielding genetics, including water-optimizing Artesian™ hybrids in the Agrisure Duracade 5222A E-Z Refuge and Agrisure Duracade 5122A E-Z Refuge trait stacks.
Agrisure Duracade 5222A E-Z Refuge represents the most advanced trait stack on the market. This stack combines the Agrisure Duracade trait with the Agrisure Viptera® trait to control up to 16 above- and below-ground pests, including two modes of action against key ear-feeding insects ― all in an elite Artesian hybrid that helps growers make the most of their available water.
