PHILADELPHIA — Because in-the-bag seed protection only works
when pests take a bite, season-long damage is done before target insects are
This season, corn growers can take a proactive approach to
maximizing germination and save $5,000 on startup costs when they create a zone
of protection with Capture LFR insecticide by FMC Agricultural Solutions.
“By the time in-the-bag treatments impact insects, the
physical damage and pathogen spread is already done,” said David Wheeler, FMC
Agricultural Solutions North America technical business manager. “We want to
help growers get outfitted to see for themselves the value of optimized seed
protection, which is what Capture LFR gives you — corn rootworm and seedling
pest control without the injury.”
Growers now can sign up at www.zoneofprotection.com to
participate in the Capture LFR Equipment Voucher Giveaway.
The first 50 eligible growers to sign up and submit proof of
purchase for 40 gallons or more of Capture LFR insecticide will receive a $5,000
voucher toward a new in-furrow liquid application system.
Vouchers can be redeemed with participating equipment
suppliers: SureFire Ag Systems; Ohio Valley Ag; AgXcel; Sprayer Specialties
Inc.; or C&R Supply.
Growers who have previously participated in the Capture LFR
Equipment Partner Bonus Program are not eligible to receive a voucher.
To verify eligibility, growers must submit contact
information, agree to the giveaway rules and regulations and answer five basic
questions about their use of at-plant fertilizer and crop protection
“Unlocking the full potential of each seed is critical.
That’s why we want to help growers experience the zone of protection,” said Adam
Prestegord, FMC Agricultural Solutions North America product manager. “Capture
LFR helps seeds and roots perform by stopping insect damage before it
Applied in-furrow during planting, Capture LFR insecticide
mixes easily with pop-up fertilizers for one-pass growth optimization and rate
adjustable protection from corn rootworm, wireworms, cutworms, armyworms, grubs,
seed corn maggots, common stalk borers and others.
Controlling seed damage promotes improved stand and stronger
roots for season-long performance and increased yield potential.
