DuPont Pioneer and Hexima announced today the discovery of a novel insect control gene that is active against certain crop-destroying insects and will help growers protect their yields. As growers struggle with pest pressure, new solutions are needed to maintain crop productivity. The gene comes from a unique genetic resource pool, and therefore, offers a promising new way to protect crops globally from the devastating damage that occurs when insect feeding goes uncontrolled.
