Program Description

The 2022 Ethos® XB Insecticide/Fungicide Dry Bean/Pea and Succulent Pea/Bean Plant Stand Assurance is designed to ensure growers achieve a positive return when applying Ethos XB insecticide/fungicide at-plant on dry beans/peas or succulent beans/peas. Ethos XB insecticide/fungicide applied for soil pests improves plant stands to optimize yields. Ethos XB insecticide/fungicide reduces fungal and insect injury, lowering potential disease entry sites and improving overall plant health for maximum yield potential.

If Ethos XB insecticide/fungicide is applied at planting time at a minimum rate of 6.8 fl. oz./A does not show a return on investment through increased stand i.e., 2,000  plants per acre, FMC will return the difference based on a plant stand between the Ethos XB insecticide/fungicide treated acres and the untreated check up to $1 per oz. of Ethos XB insecticide/fungicide used. For example, if the enrolled grower uses 8.0 fl. oz./A of Ethos XB insecticide/fungicide and the stand does not increase by at least 2,000 plants per acre, FMC Corporation will refund the grower up to $8.00 per acre
