Planting a sugar beet crop is a costly investment. Replanting it because of early season frost, freeze or wind damage puts growers behind the eight ball for the rest of the season. Although every grower understands there are no guarantees in farming, DuPont offers a program that can reduce the sting of weather-related problems.
Growers can protect their early season investment in sugar beet herbicides and insecticides with the DuPont™ Crop Protection Plus® Sugar Beet Program. Crop Protection Plus®* is a product cost-replacement program from DuPont for sugar beet growers in the United States who apply DuPont™ UpBeet® and/or Assure® II herbicides and/or Asana® XL insecticide. DuPont will provide eligible growers with product cost replacement credit when a field or a majority of a field treated with these products requires replanting because of frost, freeze or wind damage. Here is how the program works.
DuPont will provide credit through the local retailer where the product was purchased in the dollar amount of the in-season purchase used to treat the lost area. The credit may be applied to purchases of DuPont product the next season or the following year. Growers are automatically eligible for Crop Protection Plus® when they purchase UpBeet® and/or Assure® II herbicides and/or Asana® XL insecticide for sugar beets from a local DuPont Crop Protection retailer. There are no forms to fill out or paper work to deal with unless a request for herbicide or insecticide cost replacement is filed. *Restrictions apply. See Terms and Conditions for details.
DuPont™ Asana® XL is a restricted use pesticide.
