Think of the evolution of the soybean crop over the past 30 years. Research and innovation have driven higher yielding genetics that are protected by increasingly sophisticated crop protection tools. However, a changing weed spectrum, new insects, and intensifying disease pressure means that high yields and top-quality grades are never guaranteed.

Let our team of crop scientists sift through the latest research so you can keep your investment safe. Our sole mission is to protect your crop whether it's herbicide-tolerant or IP soybeans. We're testing new products, crunching data, and analyzing on-farm, real-world experience from producers to fine-tune recommendations so that your soybeans reach their full yield potential.

Explore the articles below and please contact us if you have any more questions about protecting your soybeans or maximizing your crop's potential. The FMC AgHotline is always open at 1-833-362-7722, or
