Many Southern farmers are finding they can build on the already strong performance potential of their Asgrow brand Genuity Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans by following the Asgrow 4P System. Consisting of Plan, Plant, Protect and Perform, the Asgrow 4P
System is a comprehensive, season-long approach for high yield management.
Plan: Be proactive and get your crops off to a great start. Match the best products to your acres, using the agSeedSelect digital seed guide. Take a field-by-field approach to product selection, agronomic practices, pest management and fertility that protects the genetic potential of your Asgrow brand soybeans.
Plant: Determine the optimal planting date, planting depth and seeding rate for your farm. Maximize stand establishment and canopy development by using Acceleron Seed Treatment Products to protect against early-season insects and diseases. Start clean by utilizing Roundup Ready PLUS Weed Management Solutions, including the use of pre-emerge residual herbicides, for proper weed control.
Protect: Protect your investment by actively managing weeds and closely watching for disease and pest issues throughout the season. Because pod set and pod fill are critical periods of development and yield potential in soybeans, reducing plant stress during these stages is beneficial.
Perform:Get the most from your fields by calibrating equipment and following harvest recommendations. Farmers can track Asgrow performance through agAhead communications.
