Herculex® Insect Protection

Herculex® XTRA Insect Protection
Herculex XTRA (HXX) insect protection offers a complete spectrum of in-plant above- and below-ground insect control, by combining the Herculex I and Herculex RW traits. Herculex XTRA provides consistent, season-long control of corn rootworms. Herculex I and Herculex XTRA also provide in-plant protection against western bean cutworm and black cutworm.

The Herculex® I trait: Broad Spectrum Above-Ground Insect Protection
The Herculex I trait was the first in a new generation of in-plant insect control choices from Pioneer. It helps control a variety of insect pests including European corn borer, western bean cutworm, black cutworm, southwestern corn borer and fall armyworm, as well as providing moderate resistance to corn earworm.

Herculex® RW Rootworm Protection

Herculex RW rootworm protection is a Bt trait that offers a high level of protection against northern, western and Mexican corn rootworm. It provides season-long rootworm protection for the entire root system to safeguard yield potential. This unique trait includes two proteins that control rootworm larvae and reduce adult rootworm beetle emergence.
