Syngenta Agrisure Duracade ‘Right to Grow’ program on track
Syngenta announced that its “Right to Grow” program, launched on Feb. 20, is rolling out as planned with growers and grain handlers. The program is on track to meet grower and acre expectations—and is generating interest from additional facilities willing to accept Agrisure Duracade grain at harvest.
“Two months into our ‘Right to Grow’ program, as we approach planting, we can say the program is so far a success,” said Chuck Lee, Syngenta head of corn in North America, “We have the growers and acres we wanted for our limited launch, and as we had hoped, more grain buyers are agreeing to accept Agrisure Duracade grain beyond those of our partner, Gavilon. Our goal from the outset was a collaborative effort to give growers the choice to adopt new technology with the confidence of knowing they have options for marketing their grain.”
Growers, especially those in areas of high corn rootworm pressure, are eager for new tools to combat this potentially devastating pest.
For growers participating in the innovative “Right to Grow” program, Gavilon will accept Agrisure Duracade grain at market price while providing stewardship and distribution services for producers if the producers’ standard grain marketing outlets are not an option. In addition, since the launch of the program, many other grain buyers have agreed to support their customers by accepting this grain.
Agrisure Duracade is Syngenta’s next-generation CRW trait, offering unmatched corn insect control in two trait stack options for above- and below-ground insect control. Agrisure Duracade technology features the industry’s first hybrid Bt protein and is the first trait technology to be launched with trait preservation in mind.
