When challenging weather or an economic downturn strikes the crop business, input prices are almost always questioned. But, as many may know, that trade-off can lead to dramatically lower yields. The FMC Freedom Pass program helps mitigate those risks with its Performance Assurances. It provides much-needed peace of mind for growers when they invest in FMC crop protection at planting. And it provides full season support, with assurances ranging from pre and postemergence applications to in-season pest and disease control applications.
In research conducted by FMC, 73% of growers surveyed said Performance Assurances have “somewhat” to “significant” influence on a decision to switch products. That increase in grower confidence supports the retailers’ businesses and customers’ bottom lines.
Performance Assurances are available for more than 20 herbicides, insecticides and fungicides and a wide range of crops including alfalfa, corn, soybeans, sunflowers and wheat. Below are some of the key assurances available to corn and soybean growers.
IN-FURROW PROTECTION AT PLANTING
At planting, give crops the best start possible by protecting seedlings from insects and disease.
