$20.88/A. 2-Year ROI for Capture LFR Insecticide

Two-year evaluation of insecticide Capture LFR and its effectiveness in controlling insect pressure. Capture LFR was applied in-furrow at planting with Flo-Rite® seed firmers.

This is the second year in a row we have seen positive yields and net returns with the use of Capture LFR in-furrow on soybeans. This year we had a 55 percent stand reduction due to heavy rainfall events in the weeks following planting. Capture LFR increased final stands and helped to protect the roots from secondary insects, resulting in a 3.7 Bu./A. yield increase. We are anxious to test Capture LFR one more year to achieve a solid three-year data set to feel comfortable making a recommendation.
