Anaheim, California, March 7, 2006 (AgNewsWire) – During the 2006 Commodity Classic in Anaheim, California last week, FMC Corporation (NYSE:FMC) announced the launch of Capture® LFR™ insecticide for corn. According to FMC Midwest technical support manager Robert Hooten, this unique insecticide is ideal for use with liquid pop-up fertilizers, allowing growers to maintain yields and protect their investment in seed.
“LFR stands for Liquid Fertilizer Ready and Capture is an old product that we have that’s very, very long lasting in soil, does a very good job in controlling corn insects. But a lot of growers are going to starter fertilizers and they need a product that will mix – just like their old ECs did in water – they need it to mix with the fertilizer so it makes it very easy to apply. This LFR technology allows it to go into the fertilizer and stay suspended so they have a very easy application method.” (Full Release)
