ASA, FMC, NACHURS ANNOUNCE SOY BOOSTER PLOT PROGRAM
Source: American Soybean Association news release

The American Soybean Association (ASA) announces a new partnership with FMC Corporation and NACHURS-the 2013 Soy Booster Plot Program. ASA is seeking 125 growers across the soybean-growing region to enroll by the March 2 deadline and conduct a Soy Booster field trial on their farm during the 2013 production season.

ASA, FMC and NACHURS will work with the participating growers to conduct field trials utilizing FMC's Capture LFR (Liquid Fertilizer Ready) insecticide and NACHURS HKW6 liquid starter fertilizer on soybeans. These trials will give individual soybean farmers the opportunity to observe and measure for themselves how the application of Capture LFR insecticide with HKW6 starter fertilizer will enhance profitable production on their farm.

Growers will need to devote 20 acres treated with Capture LFR and NACHURS HKW6 liquid starter fertilizer and 20 acres untreated. Products for treatment will be provided free of charge and participants must be able to apply the starter fertilizer and liquid insecticide in-furrow to all row units as they seed soybeans.

"ASA is always working on behalf of U.S. soybean producers to increase profitability," said ASA Vice President and Membership & Corporate Relations Committee Chairman Bob Worth. "We appreciate growers' participation in this important research. ASA, FMC and NACHURS will partner to educate growers about the use of these tools and techniques."

Growers who complete the Soy Booster plot program will receive a free 7" Kindle Fire HD, 16 GB with WiFi.

ASA represents all U.S. soybean farmers on domestic and international issues of importance to the soybean industry. ASA's advocacy efforts are made possible through voluntary farmer membership by farmers in 30 states where soybeans are grown.
