Capture® LFR® Insecticide Road Tour Ends, Announces Winners

2/5/2013

PHILADELPHIA – The FMC Capture® LFR® insecticide “Meat and Greet” Road Tour recently brought together more than 600 retailers and growers. Focused on Capture LFR insecticide by FMC, attendees participated in learning sessions featuring crop protection best practices for managing corn.

“The tour served as an opportunity for growers to connect with retailers and learn more about protecting their investment in corn,” said David Wheeler, FMC business solutions manager. “FMC representatives were able to answer questions as well as demonstrate how Capture LFR can fit into a grower’s crop protection plans.”

The tour concluded by naming five giveaway winners. Dana Hotz, Fort Dodge, Iowa, won a John Deere Gator® utility vehicle. The winner of a Liquid Fertilizer and Insecticide Application System was Denny Fross, Macomb, Ill. David Lawson, Shelbyville, Ind., won a Char-Broil® Grill. Ed Freking, Heron Lake, Minn., and Brian Scheff, Granada, Minn., both won 45q YETI® Coolers.

“My local agronomist told me about the meeting, so I went because I thought it would be a good way to learn more about Capture LFR,” said Hotz, the grand prize winner. “I walked away with more information on how to use Capture LFR, and I was shocked to hear that I had won the John Deere Gator.”

A total of 26 events occurred across seven states including Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota and Ohio. From August through November, the tour featured guest speakers from FMC. Topics of discussion included current issues and trends regarding corn rootworm and other seedling pests, as well as the agronomic and ergonomic advantages of using Capture LFR for maximum yield results. Local-area speakers discussed fertility management issues and trends, advantages of using in-furrow starters, and the advantages of using a retailer’s pest management program. 

“We have been using Capture LFR on our operation for the past couple of years, and we have been pleased with the results we have seen,” said Denny Fross, prize winner. “My son and I are looking forward to having the Liquid Fertilizer and Insecticide Application System to apply Capture LFR this spring.”

Capture LFR insecticide is a unique at-plant, liquid insecticide that has been proven to significantly increase corn yields. It works by eliminating soil pests before they ingest (bite and damage) Bt or seed-treated crops. Without seed injury, seedlings develop truly robust root systems and strong stands that transfer more yield-producing energy. Learn more about Capture LFR insecticide at www.zoneofprotection.com.
