FMC Issues Capture® LFR® Insecticide Corn Plant Stand Assurance Program


PHILADELPHIA – December 1, 2014 – The 2015 Capture® LFR® Corn Plant Stand Assurance Program by FMC Agricultural Solutions is designed to ensure growers have the opportunity to achieve a positive return when applying Capture LFR at-plant insecticide on Bt, seed-treated or conventional corn. Capture LFR is the market-leading in-furrow soil insecticide that offers the added convenience of unmatched liquid fertilizer compatibility, courtesy of the FMC-patented Liquid Fertilizer Ready® formulation technology.

“With rising seed costs, growers should protect their investment,” said Matt Hancock, FMC Agricultural Solutions North America corn segment manager. “If Capture LFR does not show an early season return on investment through an increased stand count of 600 plants per acre versus an untreated check, FMC will return a portion of the grower’s Capture LFR product cost proportionate to the difference between the 600 plant guarantee and their actual results, up to the full amount of the product.” 

The Plant Stand Assurance Program helps to ensure a return on grower’s Capture LFR investment. Qualified program participants must apply Capture LFR at-plant insecticide for corn at a minimum rate of 3.4 oz/acre and leave a check strip in each field for one round.

Capture LFR insecticide can reduce insect injury, lower potential disease entry sites and improve overall plant health for maximum yield potential. Corn rootworm resistance and insect pressure continue to grow and seedling pests like wireworms, cutworms and grubs not controlled by genetics are quickly becoming the primary problems of reduced stands.

“Whether you’re facing resistance or not, the Liquid Fertilizer Ready protection of Capture LFR insecticide adds another level of protection that can benefit your bottom line,” said Matt Hancock, FMC Agricultural Solutions North America corn segment manager.

To learn more about the Capture® LFR® Corn Plant Stand Assurance Program by FMC and check on eligibility requirements, growers should contact their FMC Retail Market Manager or Star Retailer before making insecticide applications. The program will take place in the 2015 corn planting season through June 1, 2015. For more information on FMC, please visit
