We hear a lot about weed resistance but don’t forget about insect resistance. That’s why I visited with Adam Prestegord (not pictured), product manager for FMC’s insecticide business. We talked about Capture LFR. This product protects a seed or young seedling, even a biotech variety, before an insect can do some damage!
Farmers can use liquid Capture LFR as an at-plant insecticide to create a zone of protection. This means healthier plant stands, increased root size and ultimately greater yield. Learn more about what FMC is doing in this are in my interview with Adam at the National Farm Machinery Show.
