Brooklyn, WI, Grow More Experience Site Faces Diverse Weed Pressure
See how Syngenta and competitor products tackle local area weed and disease pressures at the Brooklyn, WI, Grow More™ Experience site.
The weeds are the first thing you notice when pulling up to the Brooklyn, WI, Grow More Experience site. Even in early July, there are some substantial, almost full-grown waterhemp, giant ragweed, velvet leaf, lambsquarter, foxtail and other grasses covering parts of the field. This weed pressure is no mistake, and it’s a prime reason why this location was chosen for the Grow More Experience site.
