Hand inspecting young seedlings with callout to "protect your field from early season pests"

Product Information

Aeris® seed-applied insecticide/nematicide for cottonseed represents advanced technology tailored for today’s crop production. With Aeris, growers benefit from the broadest seed-applied spectrum of protection against early-season insect and nematode pressures, thus establishing healthier, stronger seedlings and root systems.

In university research trials and extension trials across the Cotton Belt, cotton treated with Aeris showed lower thrips damage and higher yield than cotton treated with base fungicide.

Protection from Leading Yield Robbers

Thrips can cause delays in fruiting, resulting in yield reductions of more than 100 lb. Lint/A, according to a Mississippi State University Extension report. Cotton is most susceptible to thrips damage from emergence through the four-leaf stage. Aeris delivers the highest level and length of thrips protection of any seed treatment during this time frame, providing up to 28 days of protection.

Aeris also has a unique pest spectrum activity, which includes nematodes, fleahoppers, plant bugs and aphids. In addition, Aeris offers protection against cutworms which can cause severe damage to early-season cotton and are commonly found in no-till and minimum-till cropping systems.

Pair Aeris with Trilex® Advanced for the most complete protection against early season insects, nematodes and disease pressures.
