$15.74 Average ROI of Insecticide In-Furrow

First year evaluation of the difference in yield and profitability between Proaxis™ and XPEDIENT® FC™ when used as corn insecticide treatments placed in-furrow with Flo-Rite® seed firmers.

Why would the addition of an in-furrow insecticide increase yield?

Sometimes we do see yield increases with the addition of in-furrow insecticide. In-furrow insecticide provides another level of protection that may be needed under high insect pressure. Healthy plants with even emergence and growth from the VE to V6 growth stage (end of stand establishment) creates the foundation for strong yield potential.
