Kelly has always relied on Ethos XB to help control insects in his corn. This season he is trialing Ethos Elite, a new version that features a dual biological strain that is supposed to enhances ease of handling and compatibility with other products.

00:00 Hi, this is Kelly Garrett. We're here in the warehouse today at at the Integrated Ag. We're starting to get products out, we're making plans, 00:06 making preparations. One of the products we'll be trying this year is Ethos Elite. 00:10 From FMC, we plant a lot of conventional corn. We plant a lot of double stack corn. We try to stay away from triple stack corn 00:18 because we feel that there's a yield deficit. So we've used Ethos xb, the older version of this product for many years this year. 00:24 Gail uh, our friend at FMC sent us Ethos Elite, and I was asking him, said, well, what's the difference? Why? Why did you change the product? 00:31 Ethos Elite compared to Ethos xb, the older version has a dual biological strain and it's a little easier to handle 00:38 and mix with other products. We should have a better mixing process, which will just make it going into 00:42 the planter that much easier. The rates are all the same, the weights are all the same. The insecticide portion is the same, 00:48 it's just the bio fungicide portion to help with root development. Things like that is what they're talking about. 00:53 So I'm gonna try this, this year, see what it's like. Uh, new product from FMC. I'm pretty excited about it 00:58 because like I said, we put insecticide in every field because of the ROI we see on that. And anytime that we can try to upgrade that help out 01:05 with the root portion, the benefits that this bio fungicide will bring us are always things that I like to trial and check out. 01:11 It's always about process improvement.
