Carrie Muehling

Cotton growers in all regions can better protect their crop with COPeO Prime, a fungicide with nematicidal activity, from Bayer CropScience. The seed treatment is available on all Stoneville and FiberMax, bringing a new mode of action to the cotton market.

“By reducing those stresses early season from nematodes. There been a lot of work done about the first 40 days of cotton production. If you can protect it from those nematodes and diseases and even thrips, and by adding a product like Aeris, which has activity against thrips, you get a broad spectrum package against most all of your early season pests of cotton,” said Chip Graham, seed growth technical service representative with Bayer CropScience. “That helps it reach its full yield potential.”
