Growers and retailers can use a new national Web site, www.AgriEdge.com, to learn more about maximizing yields and minimizing risk with the AgriEdge Corn and AgriEdge Soybean programs from Syngenta. Customized by state, the national site details the range of crop production technologies and services and risk management assurances that characterize the AgriEdge programs.
“The AgriEdge Web site puts all the resources of the program at retailers' and growers' fingertips,” said Rex Wichert, Agribusiness Marketing Manager at Syngenta. “With a simple mouse-click, growers can see how participating in the AgriEdge programs can help them optimize yields, manage risk and integrate flexible agronomic solutions that best fit their particular farming challenges.”
“The AgriEdge Corn program combines premium genetics, traits and superior crop protection options,” said Wichert.
“Participating growers can get comprehensive assurances, flexibility in agronomic tools, and integrated technology solutions for protecting yields from weed competition. In addition, the program aids growers in managing potential herbicide resistance and offers season-long insect protection.”
Growers who purchase corn hybrids with Agrisure traits are automatically enrolled in the AgriEdge Corn Program. For more information on Agrisure traits, visit www.AgrisureTraits.com.
The AgriEdge Soybean Program features a portfolio of seed treatment, plus insect and disease control options. Key AgriEdge Soybean components are the Trial and Assurance Program and the Grain Premium Program, which awards growers with premiums based on yield. They combine risk management tools and premium genetics to minimize stress and weed competition for soybeans. Retailers and growers can find details on both programs on www.AgriEdge.com.
The AgriEdge Corn and Soybean sections of the Web site describe the nature of each program, including qualifying seed and crop protection products. They also feature Syngenta sales representative and AgriEdge retailer locators, testimonials, redemption tools and information on the AgriEdge Soybean Symposiums and Syngenta Learning Centers.
