Mud Rx For Planter Tires
In damp or muddy conditions, planters and air seeders invariably are plagued with mud-plugged wheels from mud finding its way between the tire and disc. The operator must stop, manually remove the wheels and clean the mud out by hand. It’s a miserable job and it slows planting to a halt. With this easy to install, smooth UHMW plastic product on each gauge wheel, planters and air seeders keep moving and keep planting.
In dry, abrasive soil conditions the Mud Rx keeps small particles, rocks and debris from wearing the tire edges down close to the disc. With Mud Rx installed, the developers estimate three to five or more times the tire life.
The product is available for nearly all planters made from 1973 to present and will fit most aftermarket wheels and tires – both narrow and standard width. Installation is easy and does not require removal of tires from wheels.
Authority Supreme herbicide provides two effective sites of action: The combination of a Group 14 PPO herbicide with the newest Group 15 herbicide molecule enables long-lasting residual control of small-seeded broadleaf weeds and grasses. The new herbicide is effective against ALS, triazine, HPPD, ESPS (glyphosate) and PPO herbicide-resistant weed biotypes.
It controls a wide spectrum of weeds including waterhemp, Palmer amaranth, pigweed, nightshade, lambsquarters, kochia, morningglories, smartweed, foxtail, barnyard grass and fall panicum. Authority Supreme herbicide is the only premix of sulfentrazone and pyroxasulfone, two effective active ingredients against waterhemp and Palmer pigweed.
Available in a convenient low-use-rate formulation, Authority Supreme herbicide is labeled for fall and spring preplant and preemergence applications, up to three days after planting. It can be used in LibertyLink, Roundup Ready, Roundup Ready 2 Xtend and conventional soybeans as well as Clearfield, ExpressSun, conventional, oil and confectionary sunflowers.

Terrasym Biological Technology
NewLeaf Symbiotics announced the launch of its Terrasym technology and the sale of its first two nutrient enhancing products, a new class of natural, beneficial biologicals called M-trophs.
Terrasym 402 is a bio-complement applied to peanuts that provides season-long performance and higher yields. Terrasym 401 is a seed treatment for soybeans that maximizes the yield potential by enhancing plant nutrition. Both products are marketed through a network of strong regional partners.
NewLeaf uses its prescriptive biologics genomics platform to identify best fit M-trophs for each crop, use and geography.
Terrasym 401 and 402 are distinct strains of naturally occurring beneficial plant microbes. M-trophs work season long to augment plant performance.
NewLeaf’s products are designed to enhance plant nutrient acquisition during critical stages of development. Treated crops grow more vigorously, and improved nutrient uptake makes them stronger and better able to withstand environmental stresses.

New, Improved FieldNET App
Lindsay Corp. recently launched a new and improved FieldNET mobile app. Available on Apple App Store and Google Play, the app includes enhancements that offer a more user-friendly experience with improved access, visibility and control of center pivots and lateral irrigation systems.
The award-winning FieldNET technology offers seamless remote monitoring and control, integrating a grower’s irrigation tools and systems. The platform, which is compatible with almost any electric pivot brand, delivers real-time information, so growers can see exactly what their systems are doing and control them quickly and easily from a smartphone, tablet or computer.
Key features and new, real-time functionalities now available via the FieldNET mobile app include:
• The ability to enable/disable auto-restart and auto-reverse
• Powerful end-gun controls, providing aerial views
• Improved search tools for equipment and groups
• The ability to shut down multiple pivots simultaneously
• Displays time remaining for current circle or until the next stop
• Streamlined status alerts now delivered via push notification, if desired
• An improved one-touch method to access a free demonstration.
Additional features that are expected to be integrated into the app include variable rate rrigation and FieldNET Advisor, new technology that helps growers decide when, where and how much to irrigate. Currently available for use on corn and soybean crops in the U.S. and Canada, with additional crops and regions coming soon.
