Capture® LFR® Insecticide Road Tour Coming to the Midwest


Philadelphia – August 6, 2012 FMC announces the Capture® LFR® Insecticide “Meat and Greet” Road Tour, a series of meeting events that will take place at retailer locations across the Midwest from August 13toSeptember 28. The meetings will bring retailers and growers together for two-hour learning sessions on Capture LFR insecticide from FMC and crop protection best practices for managing corn. 

“These events allow retailers to connect with growers and have timely conversations with customers about protecting their investment in corn from corn rootworm and other seedling pests and getting their crop off to the best start for maximum yield,” said David Wheeler, FMC business solutions manager. “At each stop, we will be able to address questions and show growers how they can incorporate Capture LFR into their operation to develop a strong plant stand.” 

The Capture LFR Road Tour will stop at more than 20 locations throughout the Midwest over a six-week period. Guest speakers from FMC will cover 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 will discuss fertility management issues and trends, advantages of using in-furrow starters, and the advantages of using a retailer’s pest management program.

“Over the last several years, more and more growers have express concerns about corn rootworm resistance in Bt corn,” said Wheeler. “With corn prices going up, along with high commodity prices that seed is going to be more valuable. The threshold for loss of stand is even lower than it has been in the past and growers need to think about using a product like Capture LFR to protect that seed and seedling.”

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.

As part of the Capture LFR “Meat and Greet” Road Tour, growers who attend can also register on-site to win one of the following prizes: John Deere GatorTM, Endeavor Fertilizer and Insecticide 

Application System, Char-Broil® Grill or 45q YETI® Cooler. The drawing will occur at the conclusion of the tour. Each event will also include a free meal for attendees.
