Our friends at Syngenta have been honored with a product that cuts down on the amount of tillage producers have to do. Their CruiserMaxx® Beans insecticide/fungicide seed treatment won No-Till Product of the Year for 2013 at last month’s 22nd annual National No-Tillage Conference in Springfield, Ill.
“We are honored to have CruiserMaxx Beans recognized as the seed treatment No-Till Product of the Year,” said Wouter Berkhout, Seedcare product lead at Syngenta. “Recognition from these farmers speaks volumes about the early-season pest protection and results that CruiserMaxx Beans consistently provides to soybeans.”
Paid subscribers and readers of No-Till Farmer’s Conservation Tillage Guide selected CruiserMaxx Beans for this award. Many of these voters are farmers who have firsthand experience with the nominated products. Matt Rausch from Winamac, Indiana is one such farmer.
“We do a lot of no-till soybeans following corn, and I think we get a lot of early-season protection from pests with CruiserMaxx Beans,” said Rausch. “We also see a lot better stands. There are definitely a lot more soybeans, and they are better-looking compared to areas that are untreated.”
Syngenta officials went on to say that this honor is just another example of their “commitment to provide seed treatments that will enable soybeans to start strong and ultimately allow farmers to grow more soybeans.”
