Bayer CropScience Shares Solutions at Commodity Classic to Help Growers Achieve More

Helping growers realize profitable harvests is the focus of "OneWorld to Grow On," the interactive exhibit showcasing solutions from Bayer CropScience at the
2014 Commodity Classic. The exhibit provides technical information on
key products as well as management tips for growers, all focused on
the four pivotal decision-making stages in the growing season: Plan
for Success, Establish a Healthy Crop, Maintain the Potential and
Successful Harvest.
"We want our growers to leave Classic armed with the information they need to have a successful 2014 growing season," said Jim Blome,
president and CEO, Bayer CropScience North America. "Today's
successful grower expects us to deliver the integrated solutions they
need to meet challenges like pest resistance head-on, and we are ready
to help them have their best year ever."
Key offerings featured will include:
-- Sudden Death Syndrome Seed Treatment: Extending beyond the genetic
tolerance available in many soybean varieties today, Bayer SeedGrowth
has applied for EPA registration of ILeVO@, a revolutionary seed
treatment that is intended to provide growers with additional
protection against this troublesome disease, pending anticipated
registration at the end of 2014. ILeVO would add onto the growing
SeedGrowthT portfolio, including the flagship solution
Poncho@/VOTiVO@. Applied directly to the seed, Poncho/VOTiVO protects
the whole plant, above and below ground, preventing damage to
early-season seedlings and roots before pests can strike. At the
booth, Bayer CropScience continues to showcase innovation with
3D-printed models of the revolutionary On DemandT system.
-- Balance@ GT soybeans Combining high-yielding elite genetics with a
double herbicide-tolerant trait stack, these varieties offer growers
outstanding performance and weed control options.
-- Fluency agent Launching in spring 2014, this new planter lubricant
provides an alternative to standard talc and graphite lubricants and
helps to reduce the potential risk of dust exposure to pollinators.
-- Diverse Portfolio of Weed Management Options Control tough weeds in
soybeans, canola, cotton and corn with the proven LibertyLink@ system;
in corn with Corvus@ and Laudis@; and eliminate grasses competing with
wheat crops with Huskie@ Complete.
-- Respect the Rotation This weed management and stewardship program
provides growers with important updates on managing the rotation of
crops, traits and modes of action to help manage and prevent the
spread of herbicide resistant species.
-- Flagship Brands "One World to Grow On" also offers information on
flagship brands, such as Stratego@ YLD fungicide, which offers broad
spectrum disease control for corn and soybeans. Early application of
Stratego YLD between the V4 and V7 stages of corn offers convenience
along with early season disease control and more complete plant
coverage. Growers also can learn more about Capreno@ postemergence
corn herbicide and Prosaro@ fungicide, which offers broad-spectrum
control with excellent performance on both leaf and head diseases in
-- Bee Care The primary focus of Bayer's Bee Care Program is to foster
collaboration and education among beekeepers and growers to share best
stewardship practices. Bayer recognizes the importance of pollinators
as sparkplugs of agriculture and is bringing its mobile bee care
exhibit to Commodity Classic for attendees to learn more about Bayer's
efforts to support honey bee health. Growers are invited to drop by
the Bayer Bee Care booth #4100 to learn more about our bee care
Growers who collect stamps from every aspect of Bayer's exhibit will
receive a Bayer USB car charger and will be eligible to enter a daily
drawing for a 65-quart Yeti cooler. They also can share ideas and
inspiration at anew interactive wall #LeaveABetterWorld.
