Leave Nothing Behind

For the cleanest start possible in cereals, start with a Dow AgroSciences pre-seed herbicide. We offer four options for superior pre-seed weed control that are better than glyphosate alone.

Save time and money when inoculating your pulse crops

The ALPINE Injection Kit has proved to be a convenient and efficient way for growers to inoculate their pulse crops by utilizing their ALPINE G22 starter nutrition as a delivery system for these products. The ALPINE Injection kit allows the grower to save time by not having to treat the seed and it also allows them to free up a tank on their air cart if they have previously been using a granular inoculant. Many growers are noting an additional bump in yield with the combined in-furrow treatments. Call an ALPINE DSM or ALPINE Retailer for all the information.
