Protect Your Crops With Powercore™ Trait Technology

Put the power back in your hands in the fight against key above-ground pests with Powercore™ technology – a high-performing, insect-resistant seed trait that effectively helps to protect crops from destructive above-ground lepidopteran pests, such as the Maize Stalk Borer and Spotted Maize Stem Borer.

The Powercore™ trait comprises three different Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) -proteins, each targeting insects differently and thereby helping to prolong the durability of the technology. Powercore™ technology also confers herbicide resistance to glyphosate herbicides. Its unique combination of three Bt-proteins with glyphosate tolerance give it excellent control of pests and weeds. This exceptional trait technology is now available in six new maize hybrids with excellent top-end yield potential.


“As we focus on providing advanced maize seed traits that help our farmers create new opportunities to manage their business profitably, we are excited by the new opportunity that PowerCoreTM brings to meet the needs of our customers”, says Nick Goble, Pannar Seed Business Manager.
