• Outguessing Mother Nature is no way to manage defoliation; Display cotton harvest aid from FMC Agricultural Solutions puts cotton growers in charge of their pre-harvest schedule.
Growers live by the weather, but cotton growers know the frustration in forfeiting their pre-harvest investment to a few degrees’ change on the thermometer.
Outguessing Mother Nature is no way to manage defoliation; Display cotton harvest aid from FMC Agricultural Solutions puts cotton growers in charge of their pre-harvest schedule.
“At the end of the season, cotton growers want to see their bolls standing out in the field and nothing else,” said Rusty Mitchell, FMC Agricultural Products North America technical support specialist.
“Display does just that. It’s easy to use, clears plants gently and works regardless of the weather.”
While cool weather and temperature fluctuations limit the effectiveness of most harvest aids, Display removes leaves and controls harvest-time weeds across a broad temperature range.
One pass is often enough for complete defoliation, giving growers greater freedom to set their harvest timeline with no need to switch products mid-season.
Display also helps improve pre-harvest ease and quality. Its gentler action removes leaves quickly and with less plant desiccation, leaving little or no leaf stick. Reduced field trash means less green stain and higher value for harvested cotton.
The minimal odor, low use rate formulation of Display allows growers to mix less than an ounce of harvest aid per acre, rather than pints.
“A warm or cold snap shouldn’t make the difference between defoliating cotton or having to go back to your retailer to switch harvest aids,” said Mitchell.
“Display gives growers clean fields and the confidence to prepare fields on their terms.”
