PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The In-furrow Corn Plant Stand Enhancement Assurance program is designed to ensure growers can achieve a positive return when applying FMC-brand products at-plant on their corn acres. Capture® LFR® insecticide or Capture® 3RIVE 3D® insecticide improve plant stands and optimize yields by reducing injury from seedling insects to improve overall plant health for maximum yield potential. Ethos® XB insecticide/fungicide or Ethos® 3D insecticide/fungicide combine proven insect control with antifungal activity for suppression of seedling damping off diseases caused by Fusarium, Pythium, Phytophthora and Rhizoctonia. FMC is confident the use of one of these brands will help improve corn stands, lead to greater stand uniformity and provide the potential for higher yields at harvest. If FMC-brand products applied at planting time do not show a return on investment through increased stands, FMC will either return the difference based on a plant stand count between the treated acres and the untreated check up to the product cost or retreat with an FMC product where applicable.
