New Video Shows How North Dakota Growers Are Benefiting

October 6, 2015

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. &emdash; Northern Plains wheat growers try to answer two questions when determining which seed protectant to use: 1) What will protect their seed against key seedling diseases and insects? 2) What provides the best ease of use for seed treatment?

A new video, produced by Valent U.S.A. Corporation, helps answer these questions by profiling how growers utilize Nipsit SUITE Cereals in their small grain operations.

Acting as both a contact and super-systemic protectant, NipsIt SUITE Cereals provides "inside out" protection against diseases such as Rhizoctonia, Pythium and Fusarium. The additional NipsIt INSIDE® Insecticide also controls wireworms, aphids and other insects better than any other product on the market by combining three powerful active ingredients in one formulation.

"NipsIt SUITE Cereals is a premium solution for growers who want to maximize production by providing outstanding insect and disease control," said Tom Harris, seed protection market manager for Valent U.S.A. Corporation. "NipsIt SUITE is easy to use in all temperature conditions, which is a huge benefit to growers in the north whose temperatures may fluctuate 30 degrees on any given day of planting."

Recent independent research trials conducted near Scobey, Montana, indicate that using NipsIt SUITE Cereals increased yield by more than two bushels per acre compared to its closest competitor due to its excellent control of soil borne diseases and wireworm. These trials also indicated stronger plant stand.

"We've been using NipsIt, and that's been working really well," said Doug Opland, grower from Des Lacs, North Dakota. "In the mornings, it's 20 to 26 degrees, and it doesn't seem to matter. In the mornings, it works just as well as in the afternoon when it's 60."

In the following video, you'll hear about why North Dakota retailers recommend NipsIt SUITE Cereals and what they hear back from their growers who use it. You'll also hear from growers in that area about why they choose NipsIt SUITE Cereals as their wheat seed protectant. To view the video, click here.
