Syngenta has received import approval from Mexican and Korean regulatory authorities for the Agrisure Duracade trait (Event 5307). This approval allows the import of U.S. corn grown with the Agrisure Duracade trait for food or feed use in Mexico and Korea.

"As the North American leader in corn insect control, Syngenta is pleased that the Agrisure Duracade trait has been approved by the Korean and Mexican governments," said David Morgan, president of Syngenta Seeds, Inc. and region director of Syngenta in North America. "We expect the Agrisure Duracade trait to play a vital role in managing corn rootworm, improving productivity and increasing profit potential for corn farmers."

The Agrisure Duracade trait is the first corn rootworm trait launched specifically to help preserve trait durability and corn rootworm management options against evolving insect pressure. The Agrisure Duracade trait is designed to deliver unmatched corn rootworm control and will serve as a critical component of a more effective insect management system including breakthrough trait technology, best-in-class seed care and industry-leading crop protection products.

The Agrisure Duracade trait has completed the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) consultation process, received registration from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and is fully deregulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The Agrisure Duracade trait has received import approval from Australia, Japan, Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, Taiwan and cultivation approval from Canada.
