How many ways can Poncho Beta seed-applied insecticide make a sugarbeet producer’s world sweeter? With the Sweeter World Sweepstakes, there are now three ways, says Bayer CropScience: (1) better stand counts and more recoverable sugar; (2) a chance to win a trip to the 2011 American Sugarbeet Growers Association (ASGA) annual meeting in Tucson, Ariz.; and (3) a chance to win an Apple iPad®.
For the seventh consecutive year, Bayer CropScience has donated $2,000 to industry internships and scholarship programs in the names of six sugar beet growers. The growers were selected from a drawing sponsored by Bayer CropScience during the American Sugarbeet Growers Association (ASGA) annual meeting in Charleston, S.C., in early February. The winning growers had the opportunity to choose which industry organization they would like to show their support to through the donations made by Bayer CropScience. Each winner also received a Garmin Nuvi® 205 GPS unit, courtesy of Poncho® Beta seed treatment.
