LFR® Brands Protecting The Furrow

Read the entire report from
our technical services team


Corn comes under attack from various pests shortly after it is laid in the ground until it reaches maturity. There are a host of regional factors that can overwhelm seed treatments and the length of protection they offer such as corn-on-corn in dairy operations, manure spreading and heavy seedling disease pressure. With the introduction of Xyway LFR® fungicide, FMC has taken furrow protection to the next level.
