Insect Control

Benefits of WideStrike Insect Protection

widestrike3

WideStrike® 3 Insect Protection is the first three-gene Bt technology in cotton for better trait durability and resistance management. Our exclusive insect protection trait features three proteins from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt):

  • Cry1Ac (Bt protein)
  • Cry1F (Bt protein)
  • Vip3A (vegetative insecticidal Bt protein)

You won’t find this combination of powerful genes in any other Bt cotton.

WideStrike 3 protects your yield and quality by providing season-long control against a wide spectrum of damaging lepidoptera, including improved control of cotton bollworm for reduced applications. With PhytoGen® cottonseed and WideStrike 3, you get better insect control to overcome on-farm challenges for higher production.
