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.

Because insects are on the move and unpredictable year in and year out, Herculex I insect protection provides an excellent risk management tool for your operation.
