Syngenta Agrisure® Viptera™ and Duracade™ Communication
Since November, China’s authorities have rejected more than 600,000 tonnes of U.S. corn and corn products containing the unauthorized Syngenta corn trait, Agrisure® Viptera™. The trait, known as MIR 162, has been awaiting China’s approval for more than 2 years. This spring, Syngenta has released Agrisure® Duracade™ another trait that has yet to be approved by most world grain importers. The Agrisure® Stewardship Agreements for Viptera™ and Duracade™ Hybrids require that growers channel grain that is produced from these traits to appropriate markets to prevent movement to a destination that has not yet granted regulatory approval for import. Both hybrids are available to local grain producers for the 2014 growing season.
While Concord Grain sees agricultural technologies, including genetically modified products, as important ways to address the increasing demand for food, feed, and fuel we must also operate our business in a manner that respects the requirements of our industry partners and end use customers. The primary markets that Concord Grain services with either whole grain or from by-product (DDG’s) has the potential to reach countries that have not yet approved the Viptera™ or Duracade™ traits. This exposure will not allow Concord Grain to accept grain production from the Syngenta Agrisure® Viptera™ or Duracade™ hybrids.
If you are planting or plan to plant either of these hybrids, please contact us and we will work with you to try to find a market that meets the content of your Stewardship Agreement with Syngenta. We will continue to communicate any updates to you regarding this topic.
