How do you measure perfect? Whether it’s striving for the ideal crop or operation, the definition of perfect is unique to every grower and retailer.
Dow AgroSciences encouraged attendees at the 2016 Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa, to display what perfect means to them. Whether continuing a tradition, doing the right thing, caring for the land or feeding the world, attendees were invited to pick a button to show their idea of perfect.
For Dow AgroSciences, the measure of perfect is a continuous push to find solutions to help growers achieve their individual goals for their operations.
Through cutting-edge technology and a dedicated sales force, Dow AgroSciences is constantly pushing to bring innovative solutions to growers.
Weed control solutions to fit every acre
For corn growers, Dow AgroSciences launched Resicore® herbicide in early 2016 to get power over weeds. Resicore is a novel, easy-to-use formulation featuring three leading active ingredients and three modes of action to deliver powerful broad-spectrum control of more than 70 broadleaf weeds and annual grasses. Resicore gives growers a new and effective way to control the toughest weeds.
Soybean growers looking to control weeds such as marestail, giant ragweed or Palmer amaranth also have options from Dow AgroSciences. Helping growers continue the drive toward perfect, Sonic® and Surveil® preemergence soybean herbicides have multiple modes of action to control weeds in different ways. With long-lasting residual control, Sonic and Surveil keep yield-robbing weeds at bay for optimized yield potential.
Postemergence weed control options are increasingly limited due to resistance issues. The Enlist™ weed control system takes postemergence weed control to a whole new level. The Enlist system advances herbicide and trait technologies — combining the proven control of a new 2,4‑D and glyphosate in Enlist Duo® herbicide. Enlist soybeans offer a third tolerance to glufosinate.
Nitrogen management solutions
In addition to controlling troublesome weeds, many corn growers make a significant investment in nitrogen fertilizer. Instinct® II and N-Serve® nitrogen stabilizers work below ground to keep nitrogen in the root zone where corn needs it. Instinct II and N-Serve are proven to provide an average 7-bushel-per-acre increase compared with untreated acres by slowing the nitrification process.*
N-Serve can be applied with anhydrous ammonia. Instinct II protects nitrogen when applied with UAN, urea and liquid manure. Both products are proven to perform in fall or spring.
