Sugarcane Borer Control in India

DuPont is working with local farmers to control sugarcane borer pests with DuPont™ Coragen® and improve sugarcane crops in India.

By introducing DuPont Coragen® insecticide, farmers in Uttar Pradesh India have seen their borer pest problem reduced and sugar cane production increase, providing more income for their families.

A representative from Modi Sugar Mill explains how important sugar is to the Indian economy and how a massive pest attack four years ago threatened livelihood for farmers like Rajinder Singh.  Rajinder describes how his fields were practically destroyed years ago from the borers, devastating his crops and his family’s financial well-being.
