Developing PowerShield

Right Recipe: What chemicals belong in the recipe to maximize stand establishment, early plant vigor and ultimately, yield? We invest time and research dollars to accurately answer this question. Fungicides used must effectively control the diseases that inhibit reaching these plant goals. No single fungicide will fully control Phytophthora, Pythium, Fusarium and Rhizoctonia, along with other diseases. We look for multiple components to manage the full disease spectrum. Insecticide components are also used to manage major pests. Multiple locations planted at different dates identify small but significant differences to deliver the best seed experience.

Right Rate: The most effective rate is prescribed and delivered on each seed. Correct rate is critical to achieving maximum performance. Realize lower rates will lower costs but reduce effective disease control. Our trained professionals using label rates are key to the PowerShield reputation.

Right Return: Value and return on investment help growers have confidence. We understand every input choice you make must be a wise decision. PowerShield is designed to enhance our seed with a goal of providing a $3 return for each $1 invested in treatment. PowerShield leads to better stand establishment allowing us to guarantee our products with a 100% Free Replant policy.
