Corteva has announced plans to launch its new Vorceed Enlist corn varieties in Canada for planting in 2024.
Vorceed Enlist corn combines three modes of action for above-ground insect protection and three modes of action for below-ground insect protection, including a new RNAi mode of action. It also includes tolerance to four herbicides – 2,4-D choline, glyphosate, glufosinate and FOPs.
The company says the new varieties will be available through its Pioneer and Brevant brand channels.
“We are raising the bar for performance with Vorceed Enlist corn by offering Canadian farmers maximized yield potential, exceptional corn rootworm protection and more flexible weed management by leveraging our most advanced weed control technology,” says Jeremy Dirks, Vice President, Canada Commercial Business with Corteva Agriscience, in a news release.
Corteva says the Vorceed varieties will be available in limited quantities in Canada for 2024 planting, with ramp-up in a broader set of genetic backgrounds and maturities for the 2025 growing season.
Select farmers in the U.S. received early access to Vorceed hybrids in 2023.
The company notes Vorceed Enlist corn is authorized in several markets, including in the European Union and U.S. Individual traits contained in the Vorceed varieties have also received numerous import authorizations globally.
