Simplify Corn Insect Control With Force CS Insecticide From Syngenta

Source: Syngenta Crop Protection-US Press Release.

Minnetonka, Minnesota (February 7, 2013)--For 25 years, farmers across the Corn Belt have relied on Force® soil-applied insecticide to protect their corn from yield-robbing insects like corn rootworms, cutworms, wireworms and white grubs. Many farmers are accustomed to the proven performance of granular Force 3G; however, an increasing number are learning that liquid Force CS provides an identical level of control with the added convenience of a liquid.


Force CS insecticide can be applied in a T-band or in-furrow via two equipment options, the John Deere Central Insecticide System and the Force CS Raven Application System. The Central Insecticide System is available on multiple John Deere models. The Raven Application System can be installed after market on most planter makes and models, and offers the added capability of applying Force CS in-furrow with compatible liquid fertilizers. Having two equipment options to choose from means that most farmers can optimize insect control and application simplicity regardless of their equipment.
