Nufarm announces plans for Ag PhD Field Day, including Trunemco nematode management

[July 9, 2019] Morrisville, N.C. – Nufarm Americas announced today plans to showcase Trunemco nematode management technology and more Nufarm-exclusive solutions at Ag PhD Field Day in Baltic, SD, on July 25, 2019. Trunemco, launched earlier this year, is a new seed-applied nematode management technology that provides a leading level of pro­tection and higher yield profiles in soybeans, cotton and corn. The patented dual defense is available to add nematode management efficacy and consistency to seed treatment programs for Crop Year 2020.

At Ag PhD Field Day, Nufarm will exhibit as well as host a Nufarm-sponsored classroom in Tent 6 that features Arkansas soybean grower, Perry Galloway. The Nufarm exhibit will serve free lemonade and give away Trunemco hats while supplies last, host a College Cornhole Challenge and offer an opportunity to win one of two 10-gallon Igloo® beverage coolers. The exhibit will welcome Field Day-goers of all ages to sit down, relax, play and enjoy.

Nufarm experts will be on hand to discuss improved nematode protection opportunities with Trunemco. Attendees can also learn about other Nufarm seed treatments, including Salient™, Sativa®, and Spirato® premixes, as well as Nufarm herbicide resistance management innovations, such as patented Panther® Pro and Credit® Xtreme herbicides, as well as Panther® SC, Scorch™, Spitfire®, Duplosan™ and Gin Out™. Growers can seek specific advice about prevented planting management as well.

“Nufarm plans a strong presence at Ag PhD Field Day to help growers find solutions to an array of unusual and challenging conditions. We’ll also help them look ahead at tools that curb herbicide resistance and add much greater consistency to nematode management plans,” said Brad Hyman, Nufarm VP, US Crop Protection. “To say it’s been a challenging year is beyond an understatement and we’re here to help.”

Trunemco seed-applied treatment is a patented technology that primes plant physiology, activating the natural nematode barriers that optimize protection. Its biochemical and microbial actives provide a dual defense, inside and out, against nematode feeding and establishment. Trunemco protects against nematode damage while supporting root health and seedling vigor to help plants thrive, delivering higher yields.
