In its second year as a sponsor at the Southern Peanut Growers Conference, FMC shared information about Prevathon and Lucento with growers in attendance. FMC Regional Tech Service Manager Bruce Stripling says the company is excited about getting the first applications of Lucento out this season and visiting with growers about how it will fit into their programs.
“The growers are the reason why we’re here,” says Stripling. “They’re the end user of our products. They’re also the ones that are going to be asked to feed this expanded population that’s coming. Our growers are some of the best in the world. We’re excited to be here.”
He says Lucento is an excellent early and late season leaf spot product, which also fights rust and soil-borne diseases like southern stem rot. He encourages growers to mix in other modes of action to protect the chemistry in order to keep the product around for a long time.
