Optimum® Leptra™^ Hybrids

  • Optimum® Leptra™ hybrids are a powerful new pyramid of traits for superior control of above-ground pests.
  • Combining the proven traits:
    –  Herculex® I, YieldGard® Corn Borer, and Agrisure Viptera® traits with locally developed and tested Pioneer® brand corn hybrids.
  • Provides growers more flexibility and increased confidence in their planting decisions, even during late planting or in high pest pressure environments.
  • By significantly reducing ear feeding by lepidopteran pests, Optimum Leptra hybrids deliver cleaner ears with less kernel damage and eliminate one of the major risk factors for the development of molds and mycotoxins in harvested grain.
  • Limited availability for planting in the southern U.S. in spring 2014.
