MINNETONKA, Minn. — Syngenta Seeds has unveiled its Agrisure Artesian technology, the new brand name for its range of water hybrids.

Agrisure Artesian technology enables corn plants to use available moisture more efficiently, resulting in higher yields on drought-stressed acres including dryland and limited-irrigation farms in the western Corn Belt.

Limited numbers

A limited quantity of hybrids with this technology will be available through the company’s Garst Golden Harvest and NK product brands.

Initial hybrids featuring Agrisure Artesian technology will be released primarily in the western Corn Belt — where the probability of drought stress is 100 percent and yield of dryland corn can be less than 50 percent of irrigated yield levels.

Agrisure Artesian technology will be sold with Agrisure 3000GT and Agrisure GT trait technologies.
