SmartStax® PRO RIB Complete®

G8The best way to minimize the risk of devastating crop damage is to help maximize control of high-pressure corn rootworm* below ground while protecting against above-ground pests.

SmartStax® PRO with RNAi Technology provides three modes of action against corn rootworm.

PRIDE G9SmartStax(r) PRO with RNAi TechnologyRoundup Ready 2 TechnologyLiberty Link Corn


  • The first product with THREE modes of action for corn rootworm control
  • Combines the proven benefits of SmartStax® Technology with an additional, RNAi-based mode of action
  • SmartStax® PRO Technology provides broad-spectrum control of above- and below-ground pests as well as tolerance to glyphosate and glufosinate herbicides



Root damage is primarily caused by corn rootworm larval  feeding. Every root node nibbled by larvae can result in a yield  loss of approximately 15%.¹ In addition, root lodging can impede  harvesting, further reducing grain yield by 15%–34%.²
