(Monsanto)ST. LOUIS (May 13, 2013) – The Asgrow® brand is excited to offer a proven roster of high-performing, Rock Star products, along with an expansive range of soybean advancements that farmers can rely on for many seasons to come.
Asgrow Rock Star products feature the industry’s latest soybean trait technology, Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® and have consistently achieved top-end yields through a combination of superior genetics, improved agronomic traits and the implementation of the Asgrow brand’s 4P System, which is a full-season management system including the “4P’s” – Plan, Plant, Protect and Perform.
“Both the Rock Star Products and new advancements are the best-of-the-best from the Asgrow brand’s elite breeding program,” said Jeff Schneider, Asgrow Line Product Manager. “These advancements are the first class of new products from our more extensive testing program across the U.S., which will ultimately lead to farmers having more confidence in the products they plant and ensure they receive maximum performance on their acres.”
These tried and true products deliver yield stability and enhance the performance farmers have come to expect from Asgrow. In addition to the Rock Star lineup, Asgrow brand is featuring a diverse offering of new advancements that include industry-leading defensive packages that help farmers protect their yield from insects and devastating diseases such as Soybean Cyst Nematode, Phytophthora Root Rot and Iron-Deficiency Chlorosis tolerance. A field with Soybean Cyst Nematode pressure can result in a 40% loss of potential crop yield before a farmer is able to see above ground symptoms, which is what makes this parasite one of the most harmful yield-robbing pests.
“For the last 40 years, the Asgrow brand has been dedicated to bringing farmers more advanced products and agronomic solutions,” said Fabrice Houdebert, Asgrow Brand Marketing Lead. “Whether it’s our established lineup of Rock Star products, commitment to breeding the best defensive traits for farmers’ fields or providing sound, agronomic recommendations, Asgrow will continue to enhance the future of soybean innovation.”
The Rock Star products are designed to perform within the Asgrow 4P System, which is a year-long approach to increase yield potential and profitability of soybeans. By following the high yield management recommendations of the Asgrow 4P System, along with the expert advice provided by their Asgrow seed dealer, farmers can unlock the genetic potential in their fields.
