You’re invited to our 2017 Winter Program

We would like to invite you to our 2017 winter program, highlighting herbicide options, rebate offers, financing programs, and assurance programs for the 2018 crop year. With the weed control challenges of our 2017 season fresh in our memory, now is a good time to consider our options for next year. On December 13, 2017, at the Phelps County Ag Center, we will have company representatives from BASF, Dow/Dupont, Monsanto, Bayer, FMC, Valent, and Syngenta present to discuss how we can best manage the challenging weed issues we will continue to face.

Beginning at 9 AM, each company representative will be given 30 minutes to highlight their recommendations, rebate offers, assurance programs and financing options for the 2018 season. Each representative will be around all day to have a 1 on 1 discussion about your particular needs. Program options are too numerous to list completely, but on the following pages, you will find a few preliminary recommendations we have developed based on our success and failures in 2017. The product combinations and rates will vary as refine our recommendations based on…

  1. Type of soybean planted
    Roundup Ready only, Liberty or Dicamba
  2. Brand of seed planted so that we maximize your rebate potential.
  3. Timing of application
    (Pre-plant, Preemergence or Postemergence)
  4. Soil type
  5. Irrigated or dryland
  6. Crop rotation
  7. 0% Financing options for those who are interested.
