Indianapolis, IN., March 07, 2023 — Corteva Agriscience today announced plans for the commercial launch of Vorceed™ Enlist® corn products. U.S. farmers will access Vorceed Enlist corn technology across Pioneer® seeds, Dairyland Seed® and Brevant® seeds through the exclusive Corteva Horizon Network in areas of high corn rootworm (CRW) pressure in the Corn Belt.
“We’re excited to bring the next generation of corn seed innovation to help farmers protect their yields from corn rootworm pressure,” said Tim Glenn, Executive Vice President, Seed Business Unit for Corteva Agriscience. “Vorceed Enlist corn technology is designed to enable more flexibility for farmers to manage their corn rootworm acres and provides the added benefit to control late-season emerged broadleaf weed pressures.”
Vorceed Enlist corn combines three modes of action for above-ground insect protection and three modes of action for below-ground insect protection – including RNAi technology. It also includes tolerance to four herbicides – glyphosate, glufosinate, 2,4-D choline and FOP – to help improve resistant weed management.
Corteva’s corn portfolio today is comprised of elite genetics, advanced biotech trait options and best-in-class seed treatments. Future product innovations will build on our solid foundation of delivering a premium product performance through exclusive, tailored genetics and trait packages like Vorceed Enlist technology and anticipated future products like PowerCore® Enlist® Refuge Advanced® corn. *
The new Corteva Horizon Network builds on the success of the PhytoGen® Horizon Network to give select farmers in the United States first access to use emerging products and technologies – like Vorceed Enlist corn products – across several Corteva seed brands.
“The Corteva Horizon Network will enable farmers with the first opportunity to see our latest seed innovations aimed at helping them increase productivity and profitability,” said Glenn. “Working with innovative farmers to gather their impressions of our newest and most promising developments will help us better bring products to market and ensure farmers are set up for success.”
Current introductory plans for Vorceed Enlist corn include:
Corteva expects farmers across the Corn Belt to participate in the Corteva Horizon Network. Participants will enjoy priority-level support from Corteva through access to R&D information, local field teams and leadership, and product training.
