New Crop Protectants Aimed at Saving Farmers Time While Maximizing Yields, Says FMC's Bruce StriplingFri, 05 Feb 2021 08:45:32 CST
Saving farmers time and money while maximizing yields is the focus for Bruce Stripling, regional manager of technical services for FMC.
Stripling was recently interviewed by Radio Oklahoma Agriculture Network Associate Farm Director and Editor KC Sheperd.
Weíre really excited about our Xyway brand fungicide, Stripling said.
When youíre able to put a fungicide in a row and get in-furrow treatment for season-long systemic disease protection from the inside out, thatís phenomenal and unique, Stripling said.
It gives the grower some versatility and peace of mind, he said.
All of our fungicides work best when they are applied prior to onset of disease and there is no better time than at planting time, he said.
He doesnít have to wait on an airplane or big sprayer.
One shot at planting time and you get disease protection throughout the growing season, Stripling said.
Many producers are trying to cut input costs, but you canít save yourself into prosperity, he noted.
What I want to see in 2021 is no hurricanes, droughts or floods, he said.
Stripling said FMC has the science to save producers time and money.
One of the things we look at is if we canít get a grower good return than itís not a product for them, he said.
We donít have any investment in seed traits, as we are completely invested in crop protection products, he said.
Stripling is excited about several new products from FMC available for growers this spring.
Weíve got Xyway 3D fungicide and Prevathon and Vantacor insecticides, Stripling said.
We go from a product that is used at 14 to 20 ounces down to 2.5 ounces, he said.
A few ounces go a long way and less time mixing at the sprayer saves money, Stripling said.
