Dry beans (Phaseolus vulgaris) have historically been a staple food. They are widely consumed throughout the world and are rich in protein, fiber and various micronutrients. There are many sub-varieties, including pinto, kidney, black, white, and navy beans. US farmers plant about 1.5 million acres of dry beans a year, making the US a global leader in production with pinto beans being the highest in production volume.
Adequate moisture during the growing season is critical to ensuring a healthy crop. However, moisture can also cause yield loss through pod shatter. The intrusion of moisture from rain or dew can cause expansion and contraction of pods, weakening the overall structure. Pod Ceal® binds to a pod’s natural waxes and minimizes this expansion and contraction, helping to minimize pod shatter losses.
Pod Ceal® is a unique formulation containing cyclohexane polymer concentrate.
Systemic Pesticide Applications
Plant health can be negatively impacted by pests in the environment in several different ways. Each of these potential pests also require their own unique solution for control. Exit ® has been purposefully formulated to be combined with pesticides that depend upon rapid uptake and translocation of the active ingredient. Pesticides such as those with systemic or translaminar activity as well as those with hormonal or plant growth regulator effects are particularly well suited for tank mixing with Exit®. The unique ability to increase the speed at which translocation occurs is what defines Exit®.
Exit® is an activator-adjuvant comprising a blend of premium-quality esterified seed oil with a proprietary surfactant and humectant system.
