During the 2013 planting season, FMC Corporation and NACHURS partnered with 125 of ASA’s member growers across the soybean belt on a new joint venture called Soy Booster, an on-farm field trial. Growers utilized FMC’s Capture LFR (Liquid Fertilizer Ready) insecticide and NACHURS HKW6 liquid starter fertilizer on soybeans. The trial gave soybean growers the opportunity to observe and measure for themselves how the application of insecticide with starter fertilizer could enhance profitable production on their farm. Each grower devoted 20 acres of treated and 20 acres of untreated soybeans in the trial
The response was extremely positive and the 125 slots filled quicker than anticipated. Participating growers will be completing the online harvest yield forms to FMC/NACHURS to report yields. Results will be made available on this page when available.
