Americot, Inc., a leading supplier of premium cotton seed, is now offering impressive cash rebates on selected crop protection products when purchased in conjunction with its NexGen®XtendFlex® varieties. Qualifying growers can earn a rebate up to $4.00-per-acre or more, by bundling their seed purchase with essential herbicides, insecticides and Americot’s CottolyST™Enhanced Seed Treatment.
The 2019 Americot Advanced Protection Program enables growers to select from several herbicide and insecticide products – all while helping to promote a stronger start and better yield potential for their cotton crops.
Specifically, the purchase must include at least 40 units of NexGen XtendFlex cotton seed along with at least 60 gallons of Interline®brand glufosinate herbicide or 120 gallons of InterMoc™herbicide (or equivalent combined amounts of the two). Interline and InterMoc glufosinate-based herbicides are the only non-selective alternative to glyphosate in-crop, which is effective in controlling resistant Palmer Amaranth as well as a broad spectrum of weeds and grasses. Additional rebates can be earned on purchases of Moccasin™II Plus (S-Metolachlor), Satellite®(pendimethalin), Argyle™, and Acenthrin™insecticides, as part of this program.
“This program benefits growers in multiple ways,” said Terry Campbell, business development at Americot, “it promotes insect and weed control best management practices across the Cotton Belt and provides a cash incentive to the grower for doing so.”
Americot’s Advanced Protection Program takes effect immediately and will apply to any qualifying purchases made until August 31, 2019. The offer is open to growers in all cotton-producing states in the U.S. where the NexGen brand of cotton seed is sold.
For more details about eligibility requirements and specific product choices, growers should contact their participating NexGen seed dealer or NexGen representative. Additional information may also be found at www.americot.com/programs.
