PRIDE Seeds is now using the Fortenza® Maxim®Quattro with Stamina® (FMQ/S) package of insecticide and fungicides as its primary seed treatment on corn products, and for good reason.
Agronomist Matt Chapple says the company has embraced the move because of FMQ/S’s proven effectiveness at providing both early-season insect and disease protection, as well as increased plant health and cold tolerance.
Among the many exciting developments in agriculture in recent years, multi-hybrid variable rate planting stands as a potential game changer in terms of yield.
Aaron Stevanus, an agronomist with PRIDE Seeds is in the early stages of a research project that will leverage real-time data against existing best practice projections.

Sep7ThuSeptember 7, 2017Welcome to fieldtalk.ca where you will find timely information on agronomy questions, industry trends and the fit for new technologies on the farm. Fieldtalk.ca provides producers with not only a new source of information on timely crop issues, technology and agronomy trends, but also insight and perspective on decisions that have to be made on the farm every year and in every growing season.
There are lots of information sources on the web today, but drilling down to the key facts that are needed in decision making is an important part of the information distillation process. We feel this site will help provide that perspective. The site will be a useful tool especially in-season when we will be posting field pictures and videos of issues being encountered in the field that many producers will be able to relate to.
