Insecticide Seed Treatment… the right choice? By Clark Aitken CCA-ON Crop Sales Specialist AGRIS Co-operative - Chatham
Recently a report has determined that about 30 per cent of Ontario’s corn and soybean acres meet the economic criteria for applying a neonicotinoid seed treatment*. The active ingredient in Poncho and Cruiser is a neonicotinoid. The question is, “How do you know WHICH 30 per cent of acres are at risk and need the insect protection?”
