Vorceed® Enlist® corn

Corn rootworms are in trouble

AgVenture brand Vorceed® Enlist® corn will combine next-generation corn rootworm protection with the power of the Enlist® weed control system to give you the flexibility to manage the toughest insects and weeds.

The latest in our trait technology will enable multi-year flexibility to manage your corn rootworm (CRW) acres through more options than any other CRW product with multiple modes of action to control insects and tough weeds to help you maximize your ROI opportunities. Superior yield potential and agronomics from one of the largest corn germplasm libraries in the industry round out the product package for a whole corn solution.

Maximize yield potential through tailored traits and genetics for a whole corn solution

New insect protection products will be available in a diverse lineup of high yield potential genetics across a wide range of maturities.

Experience exceptional control of CRW pests

Vorceed Enlist corn features three distinct modes of action to protect against corn rootworm, including an RNAi approach.


CRW field studies have shown an approximate 99% reduction in adult emergence of Western corn rootworm and Northern corn rootworm compared to non-traited controls, helping to reduce future CRW populations and expand traited or non-traited seed and management opportunities for the following year.³

Vorceed modes of action; 6 insect protection modes and 4 herbicide tolerance modes of action

PowerCore® Enlist® corn

Clean fields & happy neighbors

PowerCore® Enlist® corn is designed to help you control insects and the toughest weeds in your fields all season long.

Stacked with the Enlist® corn trait

The Enlist® corn trait allows for the ultimate weed management flexibility with tolerance to glyphosate, glufosinate, 2,4-D choline, and FOP herbicides in corn. Enlist® herbicides stay on target and have lower volatility than both dicamba and traditional 2,4-D formulations. Use Enlist herbicides to control late season emerged broadleaf weeds such as waterhemp and Palmer amaranth.

Three distinct Bt proteins

PowerCore® trait technology brings long-lasting insect control against key above-ground susceptible insects.


More flexibility for your acres

Enlist® corn gives you the ultimate weed management flexibility with four robust herbicide trait tolerances — including powerful 2,4-D choline in Enlist herbicides to get effective, neighbor-friendly weed control. Unlock the first-ever 2,4-D and FOP trait tolerances on acres of Enlist corn — providing you with additional modes of action to control broadleaves and grasses.
