Syngenta expects three reduced refuge products to be approved between 2011 and 2014. The new products will be available in two planting options. The first option called Agrisure Refuge Renew calls for a refuge block of less than 20%. The second is a refuge-in-a-bag option called Agrisure E-Z Refuge.
One product up for approval is the Agrisure 3122 stack with multiple modes of action against aboveground pests and corn rootworm. A 5% refuge is required in the Corn Belt. Growers may purchase the 3122 stack as an Agrisure Refuge Renew product with a separate planted refuge or as Agrisure E-Z Refuge, the refuge-in-a-bag option.
A second product is the Agrisure Viptera 3220 refuge stack. It includes two modes of action against all major aboveground corn pests and a reduced Corn Belt refuge of 5%. This product will be available as Agrisure Refuge Renew or Agrisure E-Z Refuge options.
The third product, Agrisure Viptera 3222 refuge stack, has two modes of action against major above- and belowground corn pests. It will feature a next-generation rootworm control trait from Syngenta. Syngenta expects this single-bag refuge product to be available for 2014.
