Monsanto offers unique cotton replant program

Agriculture.com Staff 01/27/2006 @ 9:18am

Monsanto this week introduced a new cottonseed replant protection program called the "Stoneville Quick Start Advantage." Other cottonseed companies offer replant assistance, but Monsanto says their new program is believed to be the only one of its kind that provides 100% replant assistance no matter what cotton brand a grower planted initially, even if it was a competitor's product.

Monsanto says it will provide free Stoneville cottonseed, for the same growing season, if the grower needs to replant.

The program will be offered to cotton producers in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

A Stoneville replant protection program for Texas cotton producers will be announced at a later date, Monsanto says.

Stoneville will feature an enhanced product lineup for 2006, including new varieties stacked with both Bollgard II®, offering broad-spectrum worm control, and Roundup Ready® Flex cotton technology, providing a wider application window for effective weed control.

For offer conditions and other information about participating in the replant protection program, growers can contact their Monsanto sales representative. Learn more about Stoneville's products at stoneville.com.
