Control sugarbeet root maggot conveniently with Midac FC

Lon Tonneson sugar beet greens
BETTER CONTROL: These sugarbeets are off to a healthy start. Midac FC’s new label recommendations offer a more simple, effective method of controlling sugarbeet root maggots than current practices.
Vive Crop Protection has issued new Midac FC label recommendations for North Dakota and Minnesota.

Vive Crop Protection recently issued a new Midac FC label recommendation (2ee) for control of sugarbeet root maggot in North Dakota and Minnesota that makes it possible to eliminate a field pass.

“We have two years of strong data that shows Midac FC controls sugarbeet root maggot comparable to Counter 20G,” says Dan Bihlmeyer, Vive vice president of sales and marketing. “But for the first time, sugarbeet growers will be able to get that control easily by mixing Midac FC with liquid fertilizer or water and applying in-furrow.

“It’s very simple and effective, compared to current practices.”

Midac FC contains the active ingredient imidacloprid and is based on the Allosperse Delivery System. The technology allows chemicals that were previously incompatible to be mixed with liquid fertilizer and applied at the right time for maximum benefit to the crop and to reduce a pass over the field.
