Wouldn’t it be helpful to have a “How To” guide when it came to selecting an insecticide this season? The guidelines below highlight what to look for when browsing for ways to protect soybean yield against damaging insects this growing season.
- Industry-leading chemistries
When searching for an insecticide that best suits your soybean fields, consider whether or not the product contains a single active ingredient or multiple active ingredients, as well as what formulation advantages it offers. Like all technology, crop protection products continue to improve all the time. Select an insecticide that provides three industry-leading technologies - two proven active ingredients and a high tech formulation. These three technologies work together to provide fast knockdown and longer residual control of the most damaging insects, providing growers with higher yield and profit potential.
