VT4PRO™ with RNAi Technology
VT4PRO™ with RNAi Technology
For farmers prioritizing performance, VT4PRO™ with RNAi Technology will be the first product from Bayer to combine the three built-in modes of action in Trecepta® Technology, an elite above-ground pest package for corn, with two below-ground modes of action including RNAi Technology — the latest defense to help manage corn rootworm. VT4PRO Technology is the newest product featuring the next generation of protection against corn rootworm.
1. FEATURES & BENEFITS
The Widest Spectrum of Insect Defense From Bayer
With above- and below-ground protection against some of the toughest corn pests, VT4PRO Technology will be a versatile product with a broad geographic fit, helping to provide farmers across the U.S. the protection they need.
The Power of RNAi Technology
Developed by Bayer to combat corn rootworm, RNAi Technology offers a specific mode of action against the pest. Because RNAi Technology works differently than a soil-applied insecticide or Bt traits to control corn rootworm, it can help increase a corn plant's ability to defend itself against the billion-dollar bug1.
Proven Herbicide Tolerance
VT4PRO Technology will contain Roundup Ready 2 Technology®, allowing the plant to withstand glyphosate treatments used to prevent weeds. By reducing weeds, plants have better access to crucial nutrients and water.
3. HOW IT WORKS
Combining Proven Defenses
VT4PRO Technology will combine the three proven above-ground modes of action found in Trecepta Technology (Cry1A.105, Cry2Ab2 and Vip3Aa20) along with two below-ground modes of action, including Cry3Bb1 and RNAi Technology (DvSnf7 dsRNA) to offer corn plants built-in insect protection right out of the bag.
