Bayer Crop Science is a major sponsor of the Southern Peanut Growers Conference each year and a big supporter of the industry, so they were pleased to be offering peanut growers a new insecticide this year.
“This year we launched Belt in peanuts,” said John Hand with Bayer. “We’ve had this product labeled in several other crops previously – cotton and tobacco – and we recently received registration for peanuts.” Belt is active on most worm pests, including resistant fall armyworm populations and late-stage larvae.
Hand says they have been getting excellent feedback about Belt from peanut growers at the conference. Listen to my interview with John below.
