Moisture No Match for Crop Protection Technologies
Blooming Prairie, MN: A wet, saturated season created a real threat of disease for Ryan Larson’s NK® Soybeans – making it the perfect opportunity to test Trivapro® fungicide’s abilities. Featuring three active ingredients, Trivapro delivers long-lasting disease control and crop enhancement benefits to maximize yield potential – advantages that Larson ended up experiencing first-hand.
“Trivapro did a very good job of keeping my soybeans clean and disease-free,” Larson said. “It was the right way to go, especially with the number of days of residual.”
Studies show that Solatenol® fungicide, one of the active ingredients in Trivapro, is 10 times more potent than other SDHIs on the market and delivers longer-lasting control. Crop enhancement benefits maximize yield potential and harvest efficiency by promoting stronger stands, healthier roots and fuller pods.
“We had a lot of wind throughout the growing season this year, and it seemed that Trivapro helped provide good standability,” he said. “I would definitely recommend it to other growers based on my experiences.”
This year also left him impressed with another Syngenta crop protection product: Acuron® corn herbicide. After watching the impact of other herbicides slip over the past few years, the control from Acuron was refreshing.
“Acuron has proven itself in the field against tough-to-kill weeds,” Larson said. “It’s very good on giant ragweed, waterhemp and lambsquarters, and the application flexibility is a good benefit to have.”
In addition to growing his own crops, Ryan Larson works as a retailer with Central Farm Services in Blooming Prairie, MN.
