The FMC Agricultural Crop Protection portfolio has grown to now offer farmers a complete year-long management approach. Describing this to me during the National Association of Farm Broadcasting convention this week was Gail Stratman, Regional Technical Sales Lead.
He says, “That has been a focus for us, to offer growers more of a complete solution.” Going in to 2015 he advises growers to develop a plan, especially for pest management. This will allow them to help control their costs since commodity prices have dropped. He offers some other winter preparation ideas in our interview.
In the “what’s new” category for FMC Gail says look to Anthem® Flex herbicide which now provides residual control of grasses and broadleaf weeds in winter and spring wheat and cotton with burndown activity on emerged broadleaf weeds. It also works on weeds with known resistance to glyphosate and ALS herbicides.
