Agrisure Duracade ‘Right To Grow’ Corn Program
Since Syngenta and Gavilon Grain, LLC, launched the “Right to Grow” program for Agrisure Duracade in early 2014, rapid adoption has resulted in the total number of locations that will accept the corn trait surpassing 1,650 locations. The program provides grain marketing opportunities for U.S. farmers who plant hybrids with the Agrisure Duracade trait to control corn rootworm (CRW).
For 2015, the Right to Grow program offers qualifying farmers a per-unit stewardship premium at harvest for each bag of Agrisure Duracade corn planted. In addition, farmers may receive consultation services through Gavilon to help them appropriately steward and market their Agrisure Duracade grain through an extensive network of locations or on-farm feeding applications. Gavilon will continue to connect qualifying growers with elevators, feedlots, feed mills and other destinations. Farmers are not required to sell their grain to Gavilon.
Agrisure Duracade is Syngenta’s cutting-edge corn rootworm control technology approved in the U.S. It offers the latest corn rootworm technology in the industry in two trait stack options for above- and below-ground insect control. Agrisure Duracade trait stacks are only available in five percent integrated refuge products for easy refuge compliance.
