DuPont™ Crop Protection Plus® Expands to Add More Key Crops in Three States

DuPont™ Crop Protection Plus® Expands to Add More Key Crops in Three States

Crop producers in Kansas, Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle now have expanded protection against weather-related natural disasters with the new DuPont™ Crop Protection Plus® Full Farm program. DuPont has added coverage for soybeans, corn and sorghum to existing coverage for wheat, barley and sunflower crops for growers who apply DuPont crop protection products.

With the Crop Protection Plus® Full Farm program, growers can receive cost replacement credit for eligible crops treated with qualified DuPont products purchased from a DuPont retailer between Sept. 1, 2011, and July 31, 2012. Growers are eligible for product cost replacement if treated fields become uneconomical to harvest due to drought, frost/freeze, flood, hail or fire.

"Growers in Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas have been hit particularly hard by drought conditions during the past two growing seasons," said John Chrosniak, regional director, North America, DuPont Crop Protection. "Weather patterns continue to be unpredictable and add uncertainty to even the best crop production enterprises. Giving growers additional opportunities to protect their crops helps them manage that uncertainty for greater peace of mind."

Through the Crop Protection Plus® Full Farm program, DuPont provides credit through local retailers where the products were purchased or through the TruChoice® Opportunity Program in the dollar amount of the in-season purchase used to treat the lost area. The credit may be applied to purchases of DuPont products the next season or the following year. No paperwork is required, unless a request for product replacement cost is filed.

"Growers can work directly with their local DuPont retailers to file a claim," said Chrosniak. "The Crop Protection Plus® Full Farm program is easy to use and provides valuable support to growers who need it most. And it allows retailers to focus on providing their customers with the products and services that will help them gain the most from every acre."

After 11 years of supporting growers through the Crop Protection Plus® program, we're thrilled to be able to extend the program to include more crops in this region, so we can help even more producers through difficult times."

Since the program began in 2000, the DuPont™ Crop Protection Plus® product cost replacement program has helped nearly 5,100 cereal growers recover lost herbicide costs on about 2.4 million acres of cereal grains.
