Bean Counter Bonus Program from Syngenta Saves Corn and Soybean Growers $2.50 per Unit

Cruiser Extreme Pak and CruiserMaxx Pak offer savings at planting, deliver profits at harvest

SyngentaGREENSBORO, N.C., December 15, 2005 — (AgNewsWire) The Bean Counter Bonus Program™ from Syngenta Seed Treatment offers growers a per-unit rebate on the purchase of Cruiser®Maxx® Pak-treated soybean seed if they have purchased Cruiser Extreme® Pak-treated corn seed. This program, now in its second year, provides quality insect and disease protection for corn and soybeans while reducing a grower’s investment by $2.50 per unit of soybeans.

This year many growers who planted corn seed treated with Cruiser Extreme Pak and/or Cruiser Extreme Pak CRW took part in this exciting offer as they planted CruiserMaxx Pak-treated soybean seed for the first time. While the advantages of Cruiser Extreme Pak have been apparent for several years, the benefits of CruiserMaxx Pak became obvious over the course of its first commercially available season. Growers who participated in the program not only saw profits at harvest, they also saved money at planting. (Full Release)
