The Crop Protection Industry Never Ceases to Amaze Me…

The crop protection industry never ceases to amaze me. The big players (manufacturers) in the industry release products for crop protection, these might be herbicides, fungicides, or even insecticides, that aren’t really new products, instead they are a formulation that combines two existing products. I’ll give you an example…

Besiege® Insecticide is a popular product these days, but it’s actually comprised of two products that have been on the market since I was in high school (Chlorantraniliprole and Lambda-Cyhalothrin)… and wouldn’t you know it, if a grower purchases these two products seperately and makes his own tankmix (like he does everyday), he actually saves money!

This is just another reason why I’m so happy to be part of a team at Farmers Business Network that helps growers identify the best value instead of pushing the biggest ticket items.
