FMC has recently added several exceptional fungicides to their portfolio of crop protection products, and Don Johnson, Technical Support Representative for the company, was on hand during the 2016 Mid South Farm & Gin Show
to discuss these new innovations with growers.
“Disease isn’t always a problem, certain weather conditions definitely can make your field more susceptible to them, and fungicides can help to prevent those diseases from robbing growers of their yield if the environment does bring them in,” said Johnson. “FMC supplies an excellent portfolio of fungicides to help prevent against some bad diseases.”
The company’s two new products, Top Guard and Preemptor SC, offer unbeatable protection against several key diseases. Top Guard, mainly for use in soybeans, is the longest lasting Triazole on the market, preventing against frogeye leaf spot, cercospora leaf blight, rusts, Anthracnose, leaf blights, powdery mildew and target spot. Preemptor is a combination of Triazole and Strobilurin, and helps to greatly prevent against southern rust in corn.
“As the season goes on, you get diseases that come in and rob yields, and we’re looking at solutions to control those diseases. We’re really excited for FMC’s future in the fungicide market,” said Johnson.
