Fall Sulphur Application — Return On Investment

Presented by H.J. Baker.

NOW ON DEMAND | ORIGINAL AIR DATE: SEPTEMBER 15, 2016

Today’s cropping systems have greater demand for sulphur due to increased crop yields and the corresponding increase in nutrient needs, creating a potential imbalance. Sulphur is a critical component of crop nutrition and augments today’s high-yield systems. There is lower availability and greater need of sulphur to deliver the yields that enhance return on investment.

Fall application of TIGER Sulphur — with its gradual release characteristics — provides a great solution for improving crop results the following year. Intensive R&D results show how every dollar spent on TIGER 90CR sulphur bentonite applications on corn can return more than $3, based on average yield gain. Learn how you can open up new revenue opportunities this fall and understand how TIGER Sulphur’s fall application offers a great opportunity to maximize ROI.

The webinar focuses on the function and importance of sulphur in plant nutrition and how its reaction in the soil enhances availability of nutrients. The session will provide an ideal opportunity to learn the agronomics and economics of fall-applied sulphur.

Staying Ahead of the Billion-Dollar Pest

Presented by Syngenta
NOW ON DEMAND | ORIGINAL AIR DATE: NOVEMBER 3, 2015

Soybean cyst nematode (SCN) has been steadily expanding its U.S. presence since the 1950s and now, as the No. 1 pest for U.S. soybean growers, SCN accounts for $1.5 billion of lost yield annually. Despite the extensive use of SCN-resistant seed, SCN expansion has not slowed. This is due, in part, to the reliance on a single source of genetic resistance, PI88788. With SCN now in every major soybean-producing state, growers and researchers alike are looking for new solutions. Syngenta offers a unique management tool for fighting SCN: Clariva® Complete Beans seed treatment, a combination of separately registered products.

The nematicide active ingredient in Clariva Complete Beans provides more sustainable SCN management, enhancing the performance of SCN-resistant varieties and reducing damage from SCN-related diseases such as soybean sudden death syndrome. Through lethal activity against SCN, Clariva Complete Beans has proven to be effective and last all season long, giving growers a new tool to help them grow more soybeans.
