An Industry First for Corn

Bayer SmartStax PRO Technology is the next generation of protection against corn rootworm. Combining the proven benefits of SmartStax Technology with an additional, unique RNAi-based mode of action, this is the first product with three modes of action for corn rootworm control – the strongest biotech defense available*.

*Based upon 2021-2022 Bayer internal trials comparing leading corn rootworm technologies in fields with moderate to heavy corn rootworm pressure.

Protects Against Above and Below-Ground Pests

Minimize the risk of devastating crop damage and maximize control of corn rootworm below ground while also getting broad-spectrum protection against above-ground pests. In addition to corn rootworm, SmartStax PRO Technology will provide protection against pests including European corn borer, southwestern corn borer, fall armyworm, black cutworm and corn earworm.

The Advantage of RNAi Technology

Bayer is the first to develop RNAi technology to combat corn rootworm. Because RNAi technology works differently than a soil-applied insecticide or Bt-traits to control corn rootworm, it can increase your corn’s ability to defend itself against the billion-dollar bug.

A Defense Unlike Any Other

When facing disease pressure, on-farm trial data highlights the benefit of Dyna-Gro Seed with SmartStax PRO.

On-farm trial data shows improved performance over comparable non- SmartStax PRO hybrids in our Dyna-Gro program. Improvements are seen in yield potential and protection with quantifiable increases in profitability.
