All farmers want to protect and nurture every seed from the moment they place it in the ground, and that is exactly what FMC’s Ethos XB is designed to do.
With planting season just around the corner, FMC portfolio manager Rick Ekins was telling growers at the National Farm Machinery Show last week about this insecticide/fungicide in-furrow solution that offers broad spectrum control against soil pests and diseases throughout the critical growth stage when most yield potential for corn is set.
Ethos XB combines the proven Liquid Fertilizer Ready (LFR®) formulation with a biofungicide component that forms a protective biofilm over roots and root hairs to defends against pathogens. “It’s a broad spectrum protection product for Pythium and Rhizoctonia – diseases that are of utmost importance to growers early in the season,” Ekins added.
