NK corn seed genetics
Better performance from breakout genetics
As a result of new combinations from a broader genetic pool and better science, Syngenta has achieved the fastest overall rate of genetic gain in portfolio over the past six years. Our state-of-the-art molecular marker technology enables the creation of NK corn hybrids with high genetic yield, regardless of the environment.
Breakthrough Agrisure traits
Unparalleled breakthrough trait introduction
In addition to breakout genetics, NK corn hybrids contain breakthrough traits, including four superior traits developed by Syngenta over a five-year period – unparalleled in the industry. These traits, along with the breakout genetics in NK corn seed, contribute to higher yields, better grain quality and exceptional standability. Learn more about Agrisure traits.

Here's how the corn hybrid naming system works:
NK corn naming system
      A “N” indicates NK Corn.
      B  Syngenta maturity group. These maturity groups usually include 4-6 days of relative maturity. The larger the number, the later the hybrid.
      C  Can essentially be treated as a fraction of a maturity group. For example, 45, could be looked at as 4.5, or a mid-maturity group 4.
      D  Randomly designated letter.
      E  Separates the genetic and trait portions.
      F  Trait designator aligned with Agrisure traits:
        • First number represents Herbicide Tolerance Technology Series
        • Second number represents number of modes of action against broad lepidopteran pests
        • Third number represents number of modes of action against corn borer
        • Fourth number represents number of modes of action against corn rootworm
        • “A” denotes Agrisure Artesian technology
