Media hears company messages at Farm Progress Show
During a stop at the Valent booth, Dawn Refsell, field market development specialist, explained that corn fields harvested early this fall, will leave fields susceptible to weed growth but it could be too early to apply a residual herbicide to keep fields clean going into next spring. She explained a burndown non-residual herbicide followed by the residual later in the fall makes sense with current weather.
Kinze Manufacturing had its driverless technology tractor and grain cart combination on display but isn’t ready to talk about the next step in developing additional equipment or marketing this revolutionary technology. Company spokesmen explained an announcement is forthcoming in the near future.
The media will remain under siege to hear company messages on Wednesday with Dow AgroSciences and Syngenta doing the biggest promotions.
