Strong Plants, High Yields for Soybeans Treated with CruiserMaxx

SyngentaGREENSBORO, N.C. December 15, 2005 ― (AgNewsWire) Cruiser®Maxx® Pak proved its strength and value during its first year of commercial use. CruiserMaxx Pak-treated soybeans showed stronger stands, better plant vigor and quicker canopy, ultimately flourishing into a high-yielding crop. Planted on two million acres in 2005, CruiserMaxx Pak protected soybeans against a broad spectrum of early-season insects and diseases to maximize crop potential and boost yields.

Across the Midwest, growers who planted CruiserMaxx Pak-treated soybeans saw better plant health and vigor leading to increased yields over untreated acres. “We had a side-by-side demonstrating CruiserMaxx Pak-treated soybeans versus non-treated soybeans,” said Al Perry of Aurora, Neb. “The untreated soybeans had a lower population compared to the taller and thicker CruiserMaxx Pak-treated soybeans. There were also no bean leaf beetle holes in the leaves of the soybeans treated with CruiserMaxx Pak. At harvest, the CruiserMaxx Pak-treated soybeans yielded four bushels-per-acre higher than the untreated soybeans.” (Full Release)
