New online tool makes in-season plant stresses more manageable
With so many stresses at work in fields this season, it is important to understand the solutions that can minimize their toll. For this reason, Syngenta is introducing an online training module to teach corn, soybean and cereal growers how to manage plant stresses with Quilt Xcel fungicide. The first 500 participants who complete the module will receive a $25 gift card to Bass Pro Shops.
The tutorial features a 15-minute interactive presentation that demonstrates the benefits Quilt Xcel provides corn, soybean and cereal crops. A short quiz follows to test participants’ knowledge on the content.
“It’s important for growers to recognize what is happening in their fields and to understand how applications of Quilt Xcel can help shield plants against in-season stresses,” said Andrew Fisher, commercial product lead, fungicides, Syngenta. “This online tutorial goes beyond simply telling growers about these benefits to actually showing how they work.”
The training module shows how Quilt Xcel helps plants better manage water use during times of too little and too much water. It also explains the increase in grain and pod fill for plants treated with the fungicide. Additionally, the tutorial explores the fungicide’s dual modes of action for disease control, as well as the convenience and application flexibility benefits that corn, soybean and cereal growers can experience when using Quilt Xcel.
