SmartStax® PRO With RNAi Technology*

The Corn Rootworm Defense Unlike Any Other

Built on the strong foundation of SmartStax® Technology, SmartStax® PRO with RNAi Technology is the next generation of protection against corn rootworm available in 2022.

An Industry First: Three Modes of Action

SmartStax PRO Technology combines the proven benefits of SmartStax Technology with an additional, unique RNAi-based mode of action — becoming the first product with three modes of action for corn rootworm control.

Protect Against Above- and Below-Ground Pests

In addition to corn rootworm, SmartStax PRO Technology will also provide protection against above-ground pests including European corn borer, southwestern corn borer, fall armyworm, black cutworm and corn earworm.

The Advantage of RNAi Technology

Bayer is the first to develop RNAi technology to combat corn rootworm, which offers a new and unique third mode of action against the pest. By interfering with a corn rootworm’s ability to create a specific protein critical to its own survival, RNAi technology effectively causes mortality after ingestion. Because RNAi technology works differently than a soil-applied insecticide or Bt-traits to control corn rootworm, it can increase your corn’s ability to defend itself against the billion-dollar bug.
