Growers primarily in the western cornbelt will be able to purchase Syngenta's Agrisure Artesian hybrids in 2011. The new hybrids are considered a water optimization line, meaning the hybrids include native traits to help the plants optimize water.

Grant Ozipko, Syngenta brand marketing manager, says the new hybrids should provide a 15% yield benefit over hybrids without the traits in a drought situation.

Researchers developing the Agrisure Artesian hybrids selected traits that:

1) Developed a robust root system under stress

2) Maintained plant and leaf size under stress

3) Maintained cell function

4) Helped plants use essential plan proteins

5) Delayed the plant's shut-down response when under stress
